About

Post-Office Arts Journal is a platform for critically engaged response to exhibitions in Baltimore’s artist-run spaces, as well as a publication ground for theory essays that might not fit anywhere else. 

This digital space encourages writing submissions from artists, curators, students, writers, and non-writers. Aside from strict “arts writing,” POAJ is interested in open-ended essay writing that develops thinking on topics such as design, economics, social interaction, history, etc. If you are interested in contributing, please send us a note at postofficeartsjournal (at) gmail (dot) com either with an idea or an inquiry asking if we have anything we are looking to cover.

As a starting point for reviews, we are interested in pieces that run between 750 and 1,250 words long (but are always flexible). For essays, we are much more flexible.

Post-Office functions through a writer/sponsor system. Each piece of writing is donated by our writers pro-bono and relies on a huge chunk of generosity from each of them. Please purchase physical copies or email us to support our hosting, writing, and marketing.

Our partnership with TEMPORARY ART REVIEW connects us to a network of regional arts communities and the alternative, artist-run spaces within them. Each month, one article from Post-Office is sponsored by and co-published on Temporary.

POAJ was founded in 2014 and relies on a rotating cast of contributors.
