Obra/Artifact is a twofold endeavor: we are interested in the intersections of writing, art, and language. We situate ourselves at the borders of genre. As editors, we encourage a diversity, both of style and identity. We seek the reappraisal of traditional genre lines, looking to expose the new and exciting work being done around the world: anywhere that genre, medium, and craftsmanship are being broken down into their component parts and recombined in compelling ways.
We began as a quarterly journal, publishing in January, April, June, and October for the first year of our publication. The second year will see a deepening of each issue, with two issues being published, on in April, the other in October.
PDFs of the issues are free for all who wish to read them.
We also produce postcards from selections of art and writing pulled from the issues.
