Sublevel is an online literary magazine devoted to the nexus of literature, poetics, art, criticism, philosophy, culture, and politics. Sublevel inherits and reflects the dynamism of contemporary Los Angeles as a hub of literature, art, and activism, while also stretching beyond our locality. Based in the CalArts MFA Creative Writing Program, at 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, but rather celebrate writing of any kind that we find stimulating, timely, or otherwise compelling. We publish original essays, interviews, roundtables, and other features online as well as in print.
