About

Temenos is the Central Michigan University graduate literary journal, founded in 2000. The magazine has no philosophical or esthetic allegiances. We publish poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and art by new and established writers and artists.

The Greek word “temenos” refers both to the ancient Greek concept of sacred space and the Jungian 'safe spot' where one may bring the unconscious into the light of consciousness. Our mission is to bring to light works that are engaging, memorable, and fearless.

We accept submissions year round. Please see our submission guidelines for more information. Past and current issues of Temenos can be accessed for free on this website. For more information about Central Michigan University’s English programs visit http://cmich.edu/chsbs/x23471.xml.
