About Us

BRICKrhetoric is a quarterly online literary and visual arts journal. Established in Chicago in 2009, BRICKrhetoric features original poetry, prose, artwork and photography with a multicultural and urban focus.

We believe that by sharing our personal experiences through artistic and written reflection, we create a type of synergy in which inspiration and enlightenment fuse; this synthesis, in turn, creates in us a deeper understanding of who we are in relation to those around us; we begin to understand our own identities in relation to the universe, we gain a greater perspective on what it means to be human, and we integrate this new wisdom into our daily lives.

HISTORY

BRICKrhetoric was founded in November 2009, on the campus of East-West University in Chicago, IL. We initially invited submissions from students, faculty, staff & friends of the university, and were happy to produce our first three issues.

In December 2010, BRICKrhetoric became independently-run by a small group of volunteers, and we shifted our focus to include students from across Chicagoland (and beyond) to:

· support literacy

· promote cross-cultural perspective

· celebrate the literary/visual arts, and

· provide a canvas for writers/artists (of any age) to share their work

BRICKrhetoric is committed to providing a canvas for emerging and established writers/artists alike to illuminate topics in the humanities for the discovery and enjoyment of its readers.
