Anastamos is a literary journal with a focus on graduate work. Each issue explores the intersections that can be found within a single topic, weaving together the diversity of the human experience. We seek places where divergent concepts come together in unexpected ways.

Anastamos is run entirely by graduate students and is housed in the English Department at Chapman University in Orange, California.

Anastamos is a literary journal with a focus on graduate work. Each issue explores the intersections that can be found within a single topic, weaving together the diversity of the human experience. We seek places where divergent concepts come together in unexpected ways.

The theme for October is “Conspiracy.” This issue seeks to uncover both the intersections that occur within the meaning of conspiracy and all of the diverging ideas that paradoxically collide with the word. We seek submissions from a range of perspectives, particularly from those who can weave their own new and unexpected meanings into the idea of conspiracy. This theme highlights plots, secrets, and social agreements.  

We invite narrative fiction / nonfiction, graphic illustrations, and photographic essays from any discipline that might offer surprising insight into the idea of conspiracy. 

Submissions must be from a current or recently matriculated graduate student.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Mistrust toward another person 
  • Mistrusting of the self    
  • SIlent agreements    
  • Possibilities within the imaginary  
  • Perspectives from the margins  
  • Secrets among families, friends, or societies 
  • We are NOT interested in political conspiracy theories, or anything to do with aliens. 

Submissions close for this issue July 11th, 2020! Open to graduate students and recently matriculated graduate students only!
