Backchannels is a quarterly literary and art journal that invites writers and artists to submit original English language work for consideration for publication.
Backchannels also invites readers to offer written or visual responses to the published work of others.
By definition a backchannel is a secondary, covert route for information; or, in linguistics. a backchannel is a sound or gesture one person makes to encourage the speaker to continue. Backchannels embraces both of these definitions, as we are committed to providing a unique route for writing and art publishing while encouraging all artists to continue their stories and interact with each other’s stories.
