Main Entry: ref·er·en·tial

Pronunciation: \ˌre-fə-ˈren(t)-shəl\

: of, containing, or constituting a reference; especially : pointing to or involving a referent <referential language> <referential meaning>

At Referential Magazine we began building the magazine via one submitted piece of writing, but now we have many that  we want other artists to submit referential material to/from. This material could be visual, auditory, written etc. We expect this project to evolve the longer it exists. We look forward to hearing from you.

  1. Jessie, this is a great idea! I’m often inspired to write poetry after reading someone else’s work. 🙂

  2. Thanks Julie! It has been a fun project to work on. I often find inspiration from interacting with other writing as well 🙂

  3. Ruth Greenwood

    Are mp3s of music appropriate? I’m a songwriter who’s often inspired by poetry and short stories.

  4. Ruth – feel free to query at refermag(at)gmail.com and provide a link to any audio files you might already have up. I’m definitely open to the possibility of audio and video files.

  5. Interesting concept. I like what you are doing and wish you all the best with it.

  7. What a great idea. I think a lot of poetry is in reference to other literature or other art.

  18. Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures
    aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

  19. Please let us know which pictures aren’t loading. Thanks!

  20. Dear friends,

    Your Poets and Writers ad suggests we submit but the website says you’re not accepting submissions. Can you advise?
