Thirteen Ways is a quarterly journal dedicated to the publication of quality content in literature and the visual arts.  The title, an homage to Wallace Stevens’ celebrated poem, Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird, is a reminder that there are many ways to see the world, and countless ways to tell a story.  We publish well-crafted stories–truths and fictions, told with the paintbrush, microphone, or pencil, and in verse or prose.

Let this journal be in the image of Stevens’ tree, with ideas poised like blackbirds in its branches. And let these stories, their flight from these branches, “mark the edge of one of many circles.”
