One Throne (on hiatus since 2015) will return in 2022 for one final issue. More information to be announced soon.
One Throne does not believe in respecting borders in literature—literature is one kingdom. Some magazines may talk about publishing the best literary fiction, or the best science fiction, or the best Canadian or American writing, etc. To us, great writing can draw breath regardless of subject matter (in the case of genres) or where the writer comes from, or anything else.
We were founded at Dawson City, Yukon in 2014. BuzzFeed ranked us among the "29 Amazing Literary Magazines You Need to be Reading", along with Poetry Magazine, Tin House, Room Magazine, and select others. The awards and recognition our writers have received are listed here.
We pride ourselves on probably being the most diverse literary magazine on the planet. Most of our issues carry writing from at least three continents. Beauty is also important to us, and every poem or story is accompanied by its own dedicated art.
