We are The Horizon Magazine. We are a space dedicated to the cultivation of new voices and bold work. We are a magazine that aims to share art and literature that pushes boundaries, challenges audiences, and is powerfully expressive.

Our mission is to create a high-quality artistic journal that mixes mediums of art, literature, and photography. Our intention is that the magazine shall always be free to read, published online and accessible to all, as well as printed and distributed in select locations. Furthermore, the print edition of the magazine is also available for worldwide delivery.

We strive to make each edition of The Horizon Magazine to be a collection of beautiful and diverse work. We want every edition to be open to writers and artists from all backgrounds. So, we pledge to never have a submission fee, as we believe there should be no limitations on the opportunity to express yourself.

This is a space for the bold, a space for the beautiful, and a space for the unique.

For Writing on the Horizon.


The Horizon Magazine is dedicated to producing a high-quality magazine that is free to access. Below we have every issue ever released, hosted on our site, which will always be accessible with zero pay walls.
