About Filter Literary Journal
Filter is a literary journal made entirely by hand. Each issue contains erasures and other literary art alongside unaltered poetry, fiction and visual art. Filter seeks to represent the work it holds on a visceral level, so that the book is as carefully crafted as the poetry, fiction and art that it contains.


Filter Literary Journal is grateful to 4Culture for their funding and support.

That looks like quite a lovely Journal. All hand made too, I'll have to see a copy, for there is something infinitely better about something hand made!
