About the Magazine Sublevel Magazine is an online literary magazine devoted to the nexus of literature, poetry, art, criticism, philosophy, culture, and politics. Based in the CalArts MFA Creative Writing Program in the School of Critical Studies—an innovative and interdisciplinary environment dedicated to the experimental impulse in writing and thinking—Sublevel is a literary publication immersed in the world of art without being in service to it. We make no hard distinctions between creative and critical enterprise, instead celebrating writing of any kind that we find stimulating, timely, or otherwise compelling. Each academic calendar year, we publish eight features comprised of original essays, interviews, roundtables, poetry, fiction, and non-fiction works on a theme. We also publish an annual limited-edition print component, the Sublevel B-sides, which reflects the content of the online magazine and questions the need for print in the digital era. Sublevel Magazine was founded by Janice Lee and Maggie Nelson in 2017. Lauren Mackler is its Managing Editor.
