We are delighted to invite artists, writers, and poets to submit work for publication in Diaspora digital magazine.

Diaspora is a literary magazine established in 2018 to spread the Portuguese and Brazilian language, literature, art and culture abroad. We value pieces of art connected to these places, inspiration that comes from elements that attract and repeal us in these two multicultural and diverse nations, where the migratory flow crisscrosses our relation with the world and ourselves. We also welcome works from enthusiasts of the Portuguese language and works that deal with diasporas, migration, living abroad.
