Caustic Frolic is an interdisciplinary journal that publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and digital and mixed media. We are a student-run, non-profit organization funded and supported by New York University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences’ XE: Experimental Humanities & Social Engagement Program.
Our mission is to promote and publish a range of creative and intellectual work that goes beyond the limitations of genre. We seek to elevate the work of creators and thinkers who have a natural instinct for experimentation. We hope to incite conversations about social change by providing the space for our contributors to play with form, mix ideas, and dissect certain truths.
New Feature: Posthaste
We are excited to announce the newest feature of Caustic Frolic: Posthaste! As a running space for publication, Posthaste will display creative, intellectual, and reflective responses to prompts addressing urgent social issues in our world. Submissions are open to all XE students, faculty, and alumni.
