Our mission is to contribute to an international literary conversation by publishing quality fiction, poetry, and nonfiction that displays authentic voices and confident craft.
We support the writers we publish, helping new, emerging, and established authors reach a wider literary audience. We achieve this through sharing their stories online. We also actively seek to engage younger readers through classroom-ready lesson plans.
We strive to make a positive impact on the writing community at large. Though our selections are ultimately subjective and varied, we offer notes and critiques on submissions that we feel are nearly aligned with our vision. In a variety of features, we highlight our contributors, submitters, and those who practice good literary citizenship.
And we have also partnered with RealPeoplePoetry, a Poetry podcast that narrates selected poetry from Merak in the most compelling way possible. To give poetry the life it deserves.
Moreover, Merak is all about having fun. The masterminds behind it are a bunch of crazy people who love to read and hold the passion to write. You decide the route to your future. Because, we are just a bridge.
