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 donate here 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.
