Kippis! A Literary Journal is published twice yearly, winter and summer. Formerly a print publication, it is currently a free
online journal.

Kippis! A Literary Journal publishes high quality prose and poetic works regarding immigrant, diasporic, and ethnic topics.
We are concerned with promoting the best writing by authors who live or who have lived away from their cultures of origin,
whether that is by recent migration of a few years or distant migration of several generations. For complete submission
