see the world through your ears

Synaesthesia is an online literary and arts magazine. We publish two issues twice a year, and aim to engage writers and artists in an exploration of the senses. We love poetry, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, photography and art. We set a theme for each issue, and encourage a multi-sensory response to each theme.


what do we like?

We like work that talks to us like we're human. We like something we can taste, smell, squeeze. We don't like words that feel archaic or sluggish or heavy. We like things weird, wonderful and simple: pieces that read a theme in a way we wouldn't expect. We encourage submissions mainly from women and underrepresented voices.
