Welcome to 'The Uncommon GRACkle'

Currently published twice a year, “The Uncommon GRACkle” is the Gateway Regional Arts Center’s free literary and visual arts zine. It features original, well-written fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, photography and art, and any other expression we can fit on a few printed pages.

Like a grackle, it’s voracious in approach, foraging on every idea in words and images that sometimes flash beautiful colors, that other times cry harshly, that at all times take flight in a flurry of enigmatic truth.


We welcome submissions from all writers and artists, in any genre, although we prefer perspectives from the Gateway area of Kentucky. Please, first explore the full submission guidelines via the link here, or visit, if you have not already done so.
