About

Poor Yorick: A Journal of Rediscovered Objects  is an online literary publication of the Master of Fine Arts Program in Creative and Professional Writing at Western Connecticut State University. The journal publishes poems, stories, essays, profiles, digital video shorts, photoessays, scholarly articles, and other innovative works about or inspired by rediscovered objects and/or images of material culture. In addition to unsolicited submissions, the journal’s editorial staff will occasionally identify a particular historical object, collection, exhibit, etc., and call for submissions inspired by the selected artifact. Poor Yorick also works in conjunction with museums both locally and nationally to identify and encourage innovative works focusing on lesser-known and overlooked objects and images.
