About Us

Founded in 2015, Door is a Jar Magazine is a print and digital publication of poetry, short fiction, nonfiction, drama and artwork. 

Our publication focuses on writing that is accessible for all readers. We publish well-crafted writing that has cadence, personality, and uses familiar language to take readers on a journey. Furthermore, we celebrate the diversity of our readers, artists and writers; no matter one's social class, race, sexual orientation, lifestyle, religion, gender, education or experience, we want to publish your work and we invite you to read our publications. It is our hope that you will join us by submitting work, or by simply reading our current or archived issues.

The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
