What This Is

Before after, or prior to whatever aftermath: there is now. When the stars shift, align, when everything is as it should be for a moment or three: there is now.

We are in search of writings which reflect the here & now, the extraordinary mundane.

BA/G’s aim is to be a beacon for small voices with big wind. We seek to challenge the literary pecking order, and especially seek to act as a stepping stone for traditionally marginalized voices (and highly encourage these writers to submit to our magazine).

Before After/Godwink is a bi-annual magazine of literature and art, releasing Winter and Summer issues.

Please: use us.

Please: speak to us, and through us.
