Finding Inspiration in the Ordinary.


MONO. is a literary journal established in 2021, inviting dark humour and brutally honest reflections on ordinary life, minus the rules. We sit firmly on the borderlines and as such, do not provide authors with a rulebook, but rather celebrate diversity and individuality from content through to presentation.


We particularly celebrate older voices, recognising that emerging authors are not identikit models, and provide space for all ages to express their creativity through themes such as mental health, menopause, trauma and sexuality. Our blog is an unapologetically eclectic mix of great writing, from humour to erotica and everything in between, but always with a deliciously dark edge. 

Take a look around and if you'd like to hear about new blog posts, competitions etc please sign up to our mailing list, we'd love to stay in touch.
