“Synthesizing the best of the classic liberal arts canon with a deliriously diverse range of literary, philosophical, and historic sources, all for the purpose of shining light on present-day political and intellectual problems.”
–Harvard University’s Nieman Journalism Lab
“Of all the hot princes, gay or otherwise, [Blunderbuss is] our favorite.”
We are Blunderbuss Magazine, a web magazine of arts, culture, and politics, an ordnance of fire and improvisation. What ties together these essays, stories, poems, photographs, comics, and other bits of aesthetic shrapnel is a common attitude of visceral humanism. We aim for earnest noise. We want to splash in the mud of lived experience, to battle for a radical empathy, and to provide a megaphone to howling assertions of human subjectivity.
After years online, Blunderbuss has launched a print publication! For as little as $3 each month, you can subscribe via our Patreon page. In return, subscribers will get every print issue delivered to their mailbox, plus other great gifts at higher levels of support.
We are grateful for all donations, big and small. Your support will help us put money in the pockets of the writers & artists that make Blunderbuss possible.
Blunderbuss Magazine is currently closed to submissions. When it’s time to reopen the floodgates, we’ll let you know.
