About

Open: Journal of Arts & Letters is a privately-owned publication that offers a range of contemporary aesthetic experiences made available through several media platforms. Open: Journal of Arts & Letters has as its primary ambition to gather, publish, and popularize notable contemporary writing and other fine arts and to promote the work of its contributors to a varied and discerning audience in the English-speaking world and beyond. Open: Journal of Arts & Letters offers its audience the opportunity to sample an array of artistic expressions presented by both emerging and established contemporary artists, writers, musicians, and videographers from around the world. Open: Journal of Arts & Letters has two guiding principles that inform its editorial practice: to promote and publicize our artists and writers aggressively through social media to an appreciative audience of devoted, generous patrons to create an atmosphere without hostility wherein important conversations concerning the arts and the human condition may be carried on rationally and civilly, away from the ideological echo chambers of contemporary world politics
