AADOREE (pronounced the same as “adore”) is a small online/print literary journal. AADOREE aims to publish those voices who are pushing boundaries of writing with an emphasis on interdisciplinary work, formal and visual experimentation, and poetic sensibilities. We adore text and language that takes risks.
Each print issue of AADOREE is bound as a limited chapbookesque volume. The print journal is nearly identical to the online magazine except for one striking difference: each print issue contains an interdisciplinary section of “Adorations” by each contributor in the issue. An Adoration is an additional space, outside of the writer’s contribution, that they may choose to include interdisciplinary media: a response. A zine page. Fragments. A collage. A Polaroid. A doodle. A grocery list. An artist statement. A recipe. Marginalia. An obsession. A postcard. Tchotchke. A kiki. A manifesto. A playlist. A love letter. A polemic. A diary entry, unlocked. All of these could be Adorations.
