Action, Spectacle  is a tri-quarterly magazine based in Louisville, KY and Brooklyn. The magazine exists at the intersection of the socio-political, the cultural, and the arts—a public space for discussion and engagement. We put a spectrum of voices in conversation dialogue online, and in print (once a year), and at public events, publishing art, comics, commentary, fiction, interviews, memoir, music, poetry, and reportage.

We seek both debut and established writers and thinkers creating intriguing and original work, whether relatively conventional or extremely experimental, and we don’t shy away from the idea of a text that might be “difficult.” We employ the broadest possible aesthetic when considering submission via Submittable, including translations and hybrid and collaborative work.
