Curving Staircase


Welcome to Acropolis Journal, an online poetry and art magazine, founded in 2021. Home for temples, ruins, darkness and myth. We publish issues three times a year: spring, summer and autumn/winter. We love all kinds of poetry, but are particularly drawn to dark, emotional pieces and surrealist artwork/photography. 

We love pieces surging with imagery, your surreal, your gothic, caverns, labyrinths, the depths of the abyss, your grit, your confessional, your shrapnel of memories spun to dark velvet. We want to read that piece you stayed up writing into the full moon, when the crackling darkness turned to dust. We want that poem you love but keeps getting rejected, any hybrid or strange pieces you can't define. We also like the odd cat poem.
