About Inverse Journal


Since February 2019, when we first launched Inverse Journal, we’ve reached readers in 186 countries and 1631 cities in six continents. Our primary aim is to create a space of appreciation for contemporary culture from all around the globe, staring from Kashmir, where the journal took shape and out towards the larger world. We hope to connect people from different cultures, societies and origins in the terrain of cultural production, with a special focus on contemporary art forms such as fiction, poetry, art, music and film, as well as different forms of writing, from non-fiction and academic, to critical commentaries and visual bibliographies.

As a non-commercial publication, we are inspired by Open Source communities around the world and the Creative Commons initiative to disseminate knowledge across multiple vectors of cultural engagement. We intend to keep this space running perpetually Ad-free and without any submission fees as the platform grows. We also run on an eco-friendly server located in a data center that is powered entirely by renewable energy and certified by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
