grama is interested in writing and art that engages critically with the contemporary and historic west and with contemporary innovative aesthetics. “The west” is a complex concept, and we welcome work that recognizes this.

  • We are interested in poetry and artwork from or about the western United States, Mexico, and Canada.
  • We will refuse work that harms or exploits marginalized communities.

Please send poetry, nonfiction, critical essays, and reviews to m.gramamag@gmail.com. In your email, include a very brief bio AND a few words about your, or you work’s, connection to the west.

  • For poetry, send 2-5 poems, no more than 10 pages total.
  • For nonfiction and critical essays, send no more than 3000 words. We are not considering fiction at this time.
  • For reviews, send 3-5 double-spaced pages. Reviews may be for any genre dealing with the west.
  • For visual art, send 1-3 images. Landscape photography and photo essays are encouraged.
  • Please inquire about submitting work in other genres.
  • Simultaneous submissions accepted, but please alert us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. We cannot accept previously published work. Rights revert to author upon publication.
