Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
“What happens after the reading, in between the writing, thinking, and living?” Alternative Field welcomes dialogue, discourse, co-operative thinking in ways that may instigate internal but constructive criticism, and we do this through curated workshops, discussions, interdisciplinary events, and ethically mindful artistic collaborations and partnerships. Our focus, however, is publishing poetry anthologies. We publish anthologies under our imprint, Alternative Field Notes. We invite our communities (in various senses of the term) to use their known and/or unknown poetic sensibilities to share discourse and to archive it for future generations. Alternative Field utilizes poetry [in opposition to violent systems of erasure] as a means to bring people together for a common cause of re-associating our environments to those which are culturally familiar and relevant, in order to resist erasure, and to emerge from this era moving forward toward a more just future, guided by worldviews that foster collaboration and mutuality.
