Eleventh Transmission believes art can play a powerful role in creating a
better world. We publish socially engaged poetry, fiction, photography,
visual art, and spoken word.
Topics can include, but are not limited to: feminism, gender inequality,
racial inequality, oppression of indigenous peoples, wealth inequality,
poverty, environmental issues, eroding civil liberties, government failure
and hypocrisy, corporate media control, colonialism, war, prejudice in the
arts community, satire, etc..
Creative work engaging with topics such as mental health, domestic violence,
and addiction and recovery will also be considered, as well as all work that
engages in meaningful ways with what it means to be human.
These are often difficult stories to tell, but these are also tales of survival
and hope, humour, and love. By engaging with these difficult topics and by
daring to shine the light of truth upon these situations, we triumph over the
oppression of silence.
Eighteen issues of Eleventh Transmission were published from April 2006 -
The magazine was relaunched in February 2015.
