Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
L=Y=R=A is a quarterly literary magazine publishing experiments and language. Interpret 'language' however you like - a single word, if interesting enough, is attractive to L=Y=R=A. We want to see the nascence of language, its bareness, its skeleton, and the inner-workings of its acoustics. We want to see your world in the eyes of language, your exploration of the greatest human phenomenon, however fantastical, esoteric, weird, or weirdly normal it may be. You see, communication is a strange experience. We produce sounds, and those sounds arrange themselves in structure, and voila! understanding is birthed. This, of course, is a boiled-down definition of language, but we want to see what your definition is. We want to see how language forms, sounds, tastes, and feels to you, and we want to accrue a body of work that attempts to illustrate the complex underpinnings that make up this day-to-day human feature - the feature so entrenched in us that we sometimes forget the brilliance needed to presuppose a simple word rolling off the tongue. However you interpret language - in literary fiction, non-fiction, poetry, plays, art - we want to see it.
