Vagabonds is a literary journal that is published twice a year. We had the pleasure of releasing the first edition on August 6th, 2012, and it is still available for anyone who is interested in a copy. You can our past issues for free at our archives page.

We harbor the mad ones. People who are dedicated to their work to the point that they become misunderstood, or seen as a hot mess of crazy. Our journal does not seek to break boundaries, we want to break boundaries and go farther. We want the shameless—the deep dark, cigarettes and dirty words combo. Although there is not a set theme of what we’re looking for, we often look at slice of life works. Works featuring the life of the nameless, whether it’s the brighter side or if it’s the pure filth. When we review submissions, we want to be immersed. As Vagabonds, we are nameless, and it is our pleasure to feature the stories of such people.

We accept a wide variety of work such as Photography, Digital And Traditional Artwork, Poetry, Short Stories, Non-Fiction, Playwrights, Comic Pages, and much more! Please note that failure to comply with the guidelines here on this page will result in your submissions being returned at our convenience unread.



As of 2019 Vagabonds will no longer be printing future issues. All issues moving forward will be online only editions. 




We are focusing this issue on Authors/Artists of Color, Authors/Artists who identify as LGBTQ+, Authors with Disabilities, and former and current Sex Workers.
