Birds then came, bringing in seeds, and our pile became an oasis of life.
Xjawiły się ptaki, przynosząc nasiona i nasz nasyp stał się oazą życia. (Polish)
The Nasiona is an online magazine whose mission is to cultivate the seeds of nonfiction. We publish and promote narrative-led work that explores the human condition. In an age when telling the difference between reality and delusion is frighteningly labyrinthine, we focus on creative works based on facts, truth-seeking, human concerns, real events, and real people, with a personal touch.
We feature creative nonfiction and poetry, book excerpts, a column on memoir writing, and interview interesting individuals from all over who can give us a glimpse into different worlds.
We’re a diversity-friendly publication that values multicultural and multi-experience perspectives on what it means to be human. We look to erase borders, tackle taboos, resist conventions, explore the known and unknown, and rename ourselves to claim ourselves.
We publish continuously, on a rolling basis, and accept submissions from emerging and established authors and content creators.
We also offer editing services for poetry, fiction, and nonfiction manuscripts of any length.
Our publishing house will begin publishing nonfiction book-length manuscripts in 2019.
Our internship program aims to contribute to the development of editors, journalists, writers, scholars, and those interested in the publishing industry.
With our literary contests, we look to identify and celebrate some of the best original, unpublished creative nonfiction and nonfiction poetry out there.
We founded The Nasiona in the summer of 2018 in California.
Though based in hilly San Francisco, the world is our home. Help us cultivate this pile of seeds and we’ll do our best to create a worthy oasis for human life to not only exist but flourish.
The Nasiona depends on voluntary contributions from readers like you. We hope the value of our work to the community is worth your patronage. If you like what we do, please show this by financially supporting our work through our Patreon platform.
