Ciphertext is an online literary magazine publishing any genre of text we can get our hands on: poetry, fiction, nonfiction, hybrid, comics, whatever, we want it! Our goal is to publish new work on a consistent, rolling basis — to be a publication worth keeping up with. Because of this we don’t use volumes or issues. Find us on Twitter: @cipherTextPub
