Profane is an annual print and audio journal featuring poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction. We record every poem and piece of prose we publish in the author’s own voice.

There are no strict guidelines with respect to form or content. As our name suggests, we’re open to pieces that transgress the boundaries of what some may consider “decent.” At the same time, we encourage you to interpret “profane” as broadly as you like. We do consider work of all kinds, profane or not.

Past issues of Profane are archived on our site and are freely available for reading and listening.
