Phoebe: A Journal of Literature and Art is a Fairfax, Virginia and first published in 1971. It publishes one print issue and one online issue each year in addition to running annual contests in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. The journal has served as a space for up-and-coming writers, whose style, form, voice, and subject matter demonstrate a vigorous appeal to the senses, intellect, and emotions of readers. According to the Phoebe constitution, "We insist on openness, which means we welcome both experimental and conventional prose and poetry, and we insist on being entertained, which means the work must capture and hold our attention, whether it be the potent language of a poem or the narrative mechanics of a short story."

About Phoebe

Phoebe supports up-and-coming writers, whose style, form, voice, and subject matter demonstrate a vigorous appeal to the senses, intellect, and emotions of readers. According to the Phoebe website, writers are chosen because the editors believe their work succeeds at its goals, whether its goals are to uphold or challenge literary tradition.

The journal's website[1] also says that, as a whole, the editors insist on openness, which means that both experimental and conventional prose and poetry are welcome. The editors also say that they insist on being entertained, which means the work must capture and hold the reader's attention, whether it be the potent language of a poem or the narrative mechanics of a short story or the subtle, but perfectly phrased capture of a moment of a nonfiction piece.
