Revolution House is the brainchild of a disparate group of writers who came together during the tumultuous early months of 2017, when the MFA application anxiety was high and the lows were lower than low. We had a dream of a sprawling farmhouse, a place where we could all escape the dragging monotony of reality. But its difficult to find a house with fourteen bedrooms, so we ended up here instead, building platforms to launch other dreams.
Most of us have never met face-to-face. We are a product of the digital age –- we rely on Facebook, text messages, and e-mails. But well never meet most of you, our writers and readers, face-to-face, either. We rely on the connections forged through thought, through contact that isnt physical. Together, we will build that house, using words as our tools, as the brick and mortar, until we have created something from nothing at all.
Revolution House doesn’t care if you have a hundred publication credits or if this is your first attempt. Send us your poems, your stories, your moments of shining truth, and we will treat them as we want our own to be treated: with respect and compassion. Send us the work that moves you, for better or worse.
