The primary mission of Literary Orphans is to function as a collaborative writing and arts platform, designed to present original literary work of quality, illuminated by cutting-edge photography and art, to as large of an audience as possible.
Our secondary mission is to provoke and expand the minds of our audience through both textual and visual means; celebrating individualism with a belief that such exposure will instigate a flowering of personal agency and along with it, contribute to new and progressive understandings of social diversity across geographic spaces.
— Executive Director, Mike Joyce
