Our First Edition Is Here!

Please visit the Current Issue page to see the talented writers and photographers who helped us create the Summer 2018 edition of The Green Light!

Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And one fine morning—
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

Welcome to The Green Light, an online literary journal founded by editors Jessica Pearse and Alissa Knop in December 2017. What began as a passion for creative writing burgeoned into a dream for beginning a business in publishing—our green light. We believe that writing is one of the finest, most real expressions of the individual. We seek to publish creative works of poetry and fiction that promote just that.

We publish online issues annually (publication is each June).

Now accepting submissions for our June 2019 issue!
