Cargo Literary 18

About

Cargo is an online literary magazine that focuses on narrative and growth through travel and exploration. We publish creative nonfiction, memoir, personal essay, poetry, book reviews, and visual art including photography —submissions that evoke a strong sense of character, setting, movement, and the internal journey. We believe in the power to dream. But dreamers often look behind, from whence they’ve come, and Cargo asks us to slow down and consider our past for a moment. Consider that it is waiting for us. Cargo Literary explores the things that we carry: the images, the stories, and the scenes that make us who we are today. Traveling invites us to shift our perspectives and asks us to draw upon the unfamiliar. Traveling seeks intention, requires communication
