WHO WE ARE
Caustic Frolic is an interdisciplinary journal that publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and digital and mixed media. We seek work that pushes the limits of genre, that dwells in the unexpected. We encourage all forms of creative and intellectual experimentation.
Caustic Frolic publishes on a semiannual basis, collecting submissions from contributors around the globe. Our issues are published both online and in print. We value the potential of each form of publication; how we utilize both the digital and physical to publish work is just as important as what we publish. Each issue has a specific theme tied greater societal and cultural questions. Of course, we welcome broad interpretations of all our themes.
Caustic Frolic is a student-run, non-profit organization. We are funded and supported by New York University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences’ XE: Experimental Humanities & Social Engagement Program, formerly known as the John W. Draper Program. Caustic Frolic was predated by the interdisciplinary publication known as Anamesa, which ran from 2003 to 2016.
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.
