About

Trop is a weirdo literary magazine that lives in Los Angeles and publishes on the internet. We like funny and thought-provoking work of any form/genre/medium–especially if it does not quite fit in at traditional journals or humor sites.

Please send your work to submissions@tropmag.com. And if you like what we’re doing and want to keep it going and think you might be an angel, please donate here: $$$.
