The Cro Magnon – Call for Submissions

The Cro Magnon ( is a literary magazine of new writers huddled around a fire telling stories, exploring new meaning, and creating. From prehistoric conversation to the novel, the rudiments of writing are the communal exchange of unfixed abstractions, constructs, and images. This unchanged archaic root binds our publications to a wider process – a process whereby the epigenesis and entropy of a text are included in our il n’y a pas de hors-texte approach to publishing.
