American Chordata is an award-winning biannual magazine of bright voices in fiction, nonfiction essay, and poetry, as well as art and photography. We are founded on the belief that a good literary magazine can celebrate sophisticated design and earnest expression on the same 5.5 by 8.5 page. We offer a venue for work that’s brave, illuminating, and emotionally detailed. Charitable contributions can be made via PayPal at the link below. All donations will be used to fund future issues of the magazine.
