AMOR FATI is a thematic, quarterly digest featuring the works of Los Angeles writers, artists, and creatives. In a city of disparate parts, our aim is to create an active platform for organic and challenging exchange that is not only reflective of this generation but brings a collective voice to an anomalous city.
Formats include ANYTHING PRINTABLE, such as short stories, poetry, prose, essays, philosophies, letters, one-acts, scripts, flash fiction, lyrics, recipes, photography, visual art, paintings, illustrations, trickery, what-have-you, new or old. If you do not live in Los Angeles, your story/artwork must be about Los Angeles.

Emerging Musicians & Writers: Applications Due September 15
Since it's opening May 2010, The Hill House Residency has provided eight artists the time and space to dedicate to their craft. The Hill House works to support two fields: emerging songwriters and writers at all stages of their career. Emerging musician Marcus Sigh reflected on the Hill House Residency as if he and partner Melissa Sigh were painters who had canvases and brushes at home, but were missing red and yellow paint (space and time). "ISLAND and the Hill House gave us these, our red and our yellow."
