I will leave this up as a pattern for anyone wanting to start their own lit mag
tongue is a literary & visual arts magazine based in Houston. tongue's goal has always been to be a multicultural showcase where a particular gender, age, culture or education is not a prerequisite for publication. The passion of the individual work to share, teach and make readers feel a particular emotion or view a situation from a new perspective is what is most important. There are no restrictions as to subject type (sci-fi, erotica, political, etc.) or genre (poetry, prose, plays, fiction, etc.) and no boundaries as long as there is no intent to cause damage based purely on hate or negativity.
tongue also promotes several spoken word events as well as supporting issues and events that promote diversity and positive human relations!
Peace & Blessings,
