“Keenly focused on diversity, Apogee (www.apogeejournal.org)—meaning “the point in an object’s orbit that is farthest from the center”—aims to publish “art and literature that engage with issues of identity politics: race, gender, sexuality, class, and hyphenated identities” – Poets & Writers, October 15, 2014, Travis Kurowski

Apogee is a New York-based journal specializing in art and literature that engages with issues of identity politics: race, gender, sexuality, class, and hyphenated identities. Featuring a wide variety of works, namely fiction, creative nonfiction, editorial nonfiction, poetry, and visual art, their goal is to publish exciting work that interrogates the status quo, providing a platform for unheard voices, including emerging writers of color. Apogee also maintains an active blog that engages with issues of social justice, and regularly sponsors and co-sponsors readings and literary events.
