Mission Statement


Scrutiny is a journal that seeks literary fiction, specifically that which falls under the category of magical realism. Our aim is to promote the work of emerging writers and artists alongside those who have mastered their craft. We hope to promote writings that vary in theme but maintain a consistent tone.

The journal hopes to support its writers and compensate them for their time and effort. In addition, Scrutiny hopes to one day become a notable book publisher, printing our short stories in the form of compendiums and anthologies as well as producing full-length novels.
