About CENTURY 121

CENTURY 121 is a journal of poetry and fiction dedicated to celebrating our shared conditions and destiny—as one vast, diverse, planet-wrapping family known as humanity. This truth is so basic yet far too easily ignored so it bears repeating artistically. Thus the focus of poems and fiction may be wide and unwieldy but they all speak to what is important to us all by virtue of our commonality. We’ve come a long way since the first cities and languages of the Fertile Crescent but the most aware among us possess an unbounded hope. A hope that one day we will see ourselves first as human beings and that such a community will prevail. Commonly art has been a useful tool to express such hope and the artists herein share their stories.

His primary artistic motivation is in finding unique combinations between an academic interest (cosmopolitan democracy theory) and a creative interest (illustrating sentiment driven by an appreciation of our common humanity). He has been published in mostly small online journals such as The Houston Literary Review, The Catalonian Review, Disingenuous Twaddle, Clockwise Cat, Calliope Nerve and INCLEMENT. When not serving the State he can be found painstakingly editing his upcoming novel, The Password Primeval.
