Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Adolphus Press publishes poetry, fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and art/photography. We specialize in helping emerging artists and unknown writers advance in the literary world. We seek work that astounds and moves us. Mission Statement: The Adolphus Journal is all about promoting multiculturalism, diversity and inclusion. In fact, we celebrate it. Therefore, we are especially interested in showcasing diversity—inclusive of views from indigenous peoples, the LGBTQ community, women, new immigrants, all minorities, and those who are empathic to worldwide struggles and experiences in general. We strongly believe in our literary ethic and mission statement and therefore we wish to represent similarly minded people who believe in it as well.
