TAYO ARTS & CULTURE
We are TAYO—which means "us" or "to stand up" in Tagalog.
TAYO cultivates emerging poetry and prose, publishing writing that knifes, lifts, and strikes at the emotive truth of all things lost and adrift.
We accept work without regard to ethnicity or nationality* (all are welcomed to submit), and we're looking for pieces that slice into the phantasmagoria of the oppressed, marginalized, post-colonized, and diasporic life.
We are an annual print, quarterly online and multimedia platform for storytelling. We produce an annual publication, TAYO Literary Magazine, as well as our quarterly online Special Issue Series. We strive to build kapwa (shared humanity) through readings, community projects, and cultural events. Tayo na!
* We're keeping up our open policy of accepting work without regard to ethnicity/nationality. However, the theme of our issues will no longer be based upon a specific culture but rather those that tackle the intersectionality of diasporic cultures and art. Please read more here.
