Welcome to Pilcrow & Dagger! Our goal is to provide writers, and readers, entertainment and a break from “the block,” allowing your muse to reignite.

The Pilcrow & Dagger Literary Journal features original and creative short stories, essays, and poetry from writers from all walks-of-life. 

We publish 8 issues per year with our first issue premiering January 15, 2015. This issue can be read for free here.

We are currently revising our themes for the rest of 2019. Please check back soon for updates!
