éphémère: French for ephemeral (adjective)
lasting a very short time, short lived, transitory
L'Éphémère Review is a bi-monthly online literary and art journal that nurtures the exploration of the ephemeral, musings on the existential, and establishment of the eternal. We are fascinated with the interplay between memory and reality, truth and interpretation, perception and perspective, and the past, present, and future.
We seek poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, photography, art, mixed media, and other forms of art that straddles the line between genre, form, language, and symbol. Work that exposes the contradictions of life, and the beauty and savagery in art; the fleeting, the short-lived, the everlasting, and the infinite. The raw, the refined, the coarse, and the delicate. The pain, the joy, the heartache, and the euphoria.
The unrelenting voice.
L’Éphémère Review publishes six issues a year alongside interviews, reviews, playlists, and articles from staff writers and contributors. We also run an annual writing awards competition, currently in its first year, and are in partnerships with several other literary journals, most notably The Brown Orient Literary Journal.
If your work tethers on the line between art and artist, pain and exhalation, fiction and memoir, poetry and autobiography, genre and auteur, or mind and matter, let us give it a home. Let us give it a platform, a stage, a microphone.
We are but a small corner of the universe; there's enough room for us all here.
Welcome to the transitory. Welcome to the infinite.
Welcome to L'Éphémère.
