Welcome :: BRICKrhetoric

Sarah Khan is the editor of BRICKrhetoric, an online literary & visual arts journal based in Chicago. “BRICKrhetoric was established in 2009 to provide a canvas for emerging and established artists alike to share their work, illuminating topics in the humanities for the discovery and enjoyment of its readers. BRICKrhetoric features original poetry, prose, artwork and photography with a multicultural and urban focus.”

BRICKrhetoric was founded in November 2009, on the campus of East-West University in Chicago, IL, and initially invited submissions from students, faculty, staff & friends of the university for the first three issues. In December 2010, BRICKrhetoric became independently-run by a small group of volunteers, and shifted its focus to include students from across Chicagoland (and beyond) with a mission to support literacy, promote cross-cultural perspective, celebrate the literary/visual arts, and provide a canvas for writers/artists (of any age) to share their work.
