There are 65 million displaced people in the world today, and countless more living far from their homes in search of a stabler, more promising life. Under these conditions of statelessness and relegation to society’s unseen-or-heard margins, each written word is an act of courage: an affirmation of its author’s existence, an insistence upon their innate human value. By contributing to The Bare Life Review, you are helping to recognize this value, and to champion a rich, global literature.


Our staff hail from nations as diverse as South Sudan, China, Ukraine, and Zimbabwe. They are passionate about this project and deeply reverent toward its contributors.


The Bare Life Review is a fiscally-sponsored project of Intersection for the Arts, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your tax-deductible donation allows us to compensate authors at the professional rate they deserve, and to distribute their work as widely as possible.

From all of us at TBLR: Thank you for joining in the creation of this vital platform.
