Welcome World!

I Come From The World is a new web magazine and companion literary journal that seeks to inspire and connect people around the world by sharing the personal and collective truths that define and unite us.

We favor understanding over misunderstanding. We welcome artistic expression in all its forms. We look to examine the highly individual lens of the human experience, from all perspectives and corners of the world.

The first issue of our literary journal is currently closed for submissions as it is launching publicly on July 19. Our next contest and reading period starts September 15, 2017.

While new submissions will not be considered for our literary journal at this time, we will continue to publish essays and stories on what it means to "come from the world" and other matters on our web magazine. Current submissions will not be associated with a contest at this time.

"What does it mean to you to come from the world?" is an ongoing theme, open to individual and diverse interpretations. Other matters concern us too--including Humanity, Sustainability, and the Global Economy.

Please review our Submission Guidelines to learn more.

Response Time: Please allow 4-8 weeks.

PHOTOGRAPHY: Please upload your *.jpg or *.jpeg file here at 300 dpi resolution. 2MB size limit. Multiple submissions acceptable.

Preference: Snap a photo of your favorite spot on Earth (whether from your backyard, on your daily routine, or somewhere else on your travels) and send it in with the date of the photo and some words to put it in context. Your words here can be as concise as a caption, as creative as a poem, or as thoughtful as an essay; it'll be your photo that will catch our eye first. These submissions will be considered for our web magazine, not the literary journal component.
