Publisher's description: Consequence addresses the human consequences and realities of war and geopolitical violence through literature and art offering intellectual and emotional access to the experiences of combatants, victims, and witnesses. We provide the public with works and voices from around the world to promote a clearer and more nuanced understanding of what’s at stake in choosing to wage war or engage in conflict.

As one of our readers wrote: “It's not that the work of Consequence is vital—in an America mired in a forever foreign war, that's self-evident. It's that the work of Consequence is excellent, consistently piercing and true, devoted to hard reckoning and hard peace and writers who believe in both. When a new issue of Consequence arrives, I think of ole' Babel's wisdom: 'A well-thought-out story doesn't need to resemble real life. Life itself tries with all its might to resemble a well-crafted story.' Shards of real life on the page—that's what Consequence offers, better than any literary journal going today.”

Consequence journal and Consequence online are both published by Consequence Forum, a 501(c)(3) organization that also produces panels, readings, workshops, and community events.
