About Protean Magazine

Protean Magazine collects cutting edge literature and art for the discerning leftist, sans advertisements.

We publish our print edition annually. Our web content is updated on weekly basis.

Our content has been described as follows:

“Killer illustrations.”
“Some of the best writing on technology I’ve ever read.”
“What good literature looks like.”
"The finest purveyor of left-wing art and culture right now."

Our mission is to promote high quality literature and art for the political left.

Essays, fiction, poetry, and art all have an essential role to play in a social movement. They each examine the world through a different lens to give more shape to what is amorphous. They help us reflect on the past, embrace the moment, and face the possibilities of the future. They’re also often entertaining, precious lights in dark times.

We pay our contributors fair compensation for their labor.

As a nonprofit operation, our goal lies in the quality of our work, not the size of our margins. We sell magazines and raise funds so that we can pay left leaning writers and artists to create high quality work.

We are a certified 501(c)3 nonprofit. We are funded by our readers.

Goals
$960.64 of $2,000 per month
At $2000 a month, we'll be able to significantly increase our output of criticism, fiction, and poetry, publishing our free content online more regularly while continuing to provide paid opportunities for writers.
