Support Snarl: a journal of literature & art

Snarl was founded in 2019 as an effort to publish and promote the work of marginalized creators with a connection to the Lawrence/Greater Kansas City area. Following the publication of our first print issue, we have now expanded our focus to marginalized writers and artists of any part of the world.


As a print and online journal, Snarl publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, artwork, and more. We are so grateful to the wonderful creators who appeared in our first issue, and look forward to featuring other great writers and artists in future issues!


As a journal that pays semi-professional rates and always has a free submission option, our need for financial support is great. Funds raised on GoFundMe will go toward paying creators for their work (whether published in Snarl Online or in print), covering print costs for the print issue, and more.
