oddball magazine

started out as a street zine over 20 years ago. In 2010, I brought oddball magazine online. In 2012, I teamed up with Boston poet Chad Parenteau and he became my Associate Editor. Since then, we have been one of the most active online lit magazines in the poetry scene.
We have grown a diverse, killer community of poets, artists, and some of the best contributors I could ever ask for. We are an eclectic bunch. We have weekly poetry, art, comic strips, book reviews, music reviews, and an open place for originality. We provide a canvas. Our community paints it.

We have an expanding clothes store, books we love on our book store, and also the Oddball Show podcast (advocacy and artistry on the airwaves).

And we are constantly growing. We are also always open for collaboration from poets, artists, advocates, comedians, musicians, or big thinkers. If you have an idea to grow our collective, or to reach out to me or Chad, or any of our columnists, please feel free to contact us anytime.
