PHIction: A Journal of Philosophy Through Literary Arts


PHIction Spring 2012 Issue

PHIction: A Journal Of Philosophy Through Literary Arts is published annually in the spring by the Department of Philosophy at Texas State University-San Marcos. We feature previously unpublished original work by current undergraduate and graduate students. General correspondence may be addressed to


The editors seek original poems and short-stories of up to 3,000 words.  Submissions are due by February 22, 2017.  Authors will be notified in early March, with publication planned by the end of April 2017.  Individuals may submit up to 3 poems and 1 short story.


    In this we will be looking for works that excel in using literary art to show readers the philosophical questions and ideas we face in the act of living and thinking.  Works should aim to evoke thought, challenge the reader, and leave the reader in a state of inquiry.  Philosophy provides in readers a greater sense of the big questions we all think about.  Thanks for your submissions and for your efforts.
