The Responsible Future
Nat. Brut’s (pr. nat broot) principal mission is to showcase the work of writers and artists who have been historically devalued or pigeonholed by art and literary institutions. We publish work that has been buried, ignored, and disappeared from public consciousness. Equally, we seek work that comes from artists’ buried, ignored, and disappeared impulses and practices—the risky, the exploratory, and the potentially ugly.
We bring together work that is serious and humorous, formal and experimental, by artists and writers who are trained and untrained, emerging and established. The work that we publish is intentionally representative of different identities, perspectives, and experiences. We believe in the power of presenting all of these voices in proximity.
Formerly a biannual magazine, we now release one online issue a year and hold free submissions during the spring. Once a year, we hold free submissions for our folios.
In 2021, Nat. Brut, which is 100% volunteer-run, began paying our contributors a small honorarium. We are excited to have taken the first steps toward a paid model.
Nat. Brut is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Donations must be made payable to Fractured Atlas only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Nat. Brut is a proud winner of a 2020 Whiting Literary Magazine Prize.
