About Catapult

Catapult publishes literary fiction and artful narrative nonfiction that is alive, insightful, illuminating, and surprising, by vital voices—emerging and established—that honor the craft of writing and provide fresh points of view on essential conversations. Our mission is threefold: to offer a space for diverse, risk-taking writers from all over the world to collide and be in conversation; to contribute to contemporary literary culture in the United States and beyond; and to serve the needs and curiosities of a diverse and serious literary readership and writing community—including those who come to us through Catapult’s online magazine or classes program—by publishing with respect, consideration, and openness. As our Man Booker International Prize winning author Jokha Alharthi has written, the best literature can “invite us to look at other people and cultures with an open mind and heart.” To read more about our mission and vision, read our mission statement.
