Palooka is an international nonprofit literary magazine of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, drama, graphic short stories, graphic essays, comic strips, artwork, photography, and multimedia. We offer print and electronic versions of the magazine and offer samples of the published materials online. We're determined to find those writers and artists who are hungry and relevant, flying under the radar, producing great works that are going unnoticed. We read absolutely everything sent to us, word-for-word, right down to the very last juicy sentence. This is a magazine for everyone, but we're really into publishing the up-and-comer, the underdog in the literary battle royale. Give us your best shot. We dare you.
