Mission

|tap| lit mag aims to publish poetry and prose by marginalized voices on the themes of trauma, mental health, and social justice. What we want to read:  personal narratives. Work that is vulnerable, evocative, risk-taking with emotion.  We are especially interested in reading experimental or hybrid-genre work. What we don't want to read:  works that co-opt or appropriate a marginalized experience.

Please read |tap| before submitting. Previous issues are archived

|tap| is a paying market. Upon publication, contributors will receive $25 via electronic banking means.
