Habitat Magazine is a community of passionate, innovative, and thoughtful individuals interested in writing that redefines the lines of genre and form and explores

what it means to be a writer in the 21st century.


We believe poetry is everything from Hip Hop to surrealism, documentary to tanka. Habitat publishes poetry that moves, informs, and explores the self, structure, and surroundings.


We value the ability of fiction, nonfiction, and other narrative forms to show us perspectives other than our own. Habitat provides a home for literature that shows us the unexpected

and disrupts the dominant cultural narrative.


Habitat prides itself on publishing writers under 40, no matter their credentials, academic history, or background. We want to publish the next generation of great writers,

because that’s who we are too.
