About Us

Our Weird Name

It has a purpose, we swear. The phylum "Euarthropoda" is the most diverse, containing roughly 75% of all animals on Earth. Our goal at Arthropod is the same: to include a diverse group of creative minds in our literary phylum.

What We'll Read

Everything! And not in the way that your friend says "I listen to everything" then complains when you turn on "Cattle Decapitation." We accept submissions for Fiction, Poetry, Creative Non-Fiction, Essays, Visual Art, and more! 

Payment for Writers

As a fully independent journal, we cannot provide compensation for writers at this time. Our goal is to offer payment as soon as possible. Paying writers will come before profit, but at this time we are unable to compensate for submissions.
