Always DefiantAlways Unique


Defiant Scribe

Defiant Scribe is an online lit mag created for the 21st century. Started by this generation, for this generation, we offer an updated take on the literary magazine with content that takes risks and explores a myriad of topics; writing that is diverse and inclusive, and always defiant, always unique.

We love fiction and nonfiction that is BOLD, edgy, and sometimes experimental. We seek out works that are original, memorable, creative, and of course, entertaining. If you’re a writer with a strong point of view and a distinct, well-developed voice, or a reader with a fondness for good stories, then this is the place for you.

In August of 2019, Defiant Scribe went on hiatus after 20 excellent editions and nearly 300 published pieces. But the good news? We’ve returned! Defiant Scribe will now be releasing new editions on a seasonal basis (i.e., four times a year). We’re currently accepting submissions for our next issue, and you can visit this page to send us your fiction or nonfiction stories. Join our mailing list to be notified when the next edition is released—and in the meantime, keep yourself entertained via our Edition Library.
