American Chordata n.11
American Chordata is an art and literary short story magazine based in Brooklyn, USA. Published by the American Chordata Fundation it is the result of an experiment in "literary democracy".
In fact, it was born in 2014 by experts in the publishing sector with the intention of building, in parallel with their main activity, a democratic means and free from the corporate logic of the large publishing houses. American Chordata is an independent project of little-known writers and art lovers who bring together their stories, their absurd stories, their literary passion and their artistic projects in this publication. They leave the mainstream of their work made up of hierarchies and business logic and give unlimited space to their creativity.
