“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.”
In operation from 2013 through 2018, Blunderbuss Magazine was 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.
This website will stay online indefinitely so you can continue to access the work of the hundreds of talented writers & artists we had the good fortune to publish.
Blunderbuss Magazine ceased operations in 2018, so we have no need for your generosity. We are infinitely grateful to those who supported us over the years.
Sadly, we are no longer a living, breathing entity. If you want to get in touch with a writer or artist published in Blunderbuss, we’d encourage you to contact them directly. General queries about the magazine and it’s legacy can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re sure that we’d love to run your work, but again, we’re defunct.
