About Us

The Midway is a vibrant neighborhood located off I-94 that borders the twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. It’s also the home to the Minnesota state fairgrounds. Alive with a mix of energies and people, The Midway is a place of boundary crossing, reflecting our vision for this journal.

Our goal is that Midway Journal act as a bridge between aesthetics (and coasts), and, like any good fair, that it also creates an engaging sense of place for our readers. The work we publish aims to complicate and question the boundaries of genre, binary, and perspective. It offers surprises and ways of re-seeing, re-thinking, and re-feeling: a veritable banquet of literary fare.

We seek to publish a variety of styles and diverse voices, and we are honored to present work by new and established writers alike. We especially welcome marginalized voices and authors from underrepresented communities to submit their writing.

We publish four issues annually with new issues going live on the 15th of January, April, July, and October. Experience the wide range of prose, poetry, and artwork/photography in Midway Journal.

Please enjoy and submit your work for consideration.
