The Wondrous Real is a quarterly online literary fiction magazine focused on finding the magic within the reality we live in. We believe parts of the world we live in can be illuminated through the light of the extraordinary. Come tell us the extraordinary tales of the mundane and mundane tales of the extraordinary you have - we'd love to bring them into the light.

We accept fiction, poetry and visual art for our upcoming issues.

it is amazing because it is strange. Everything strange, everything amazing, everything that eludes established norms is marvelous.



We are an independent publication that relies completely on donations and out-of-pocket funding. Any donations go exclusively to the development of the magazine, compensation for artists, and breaking even on expenses.

To help us make this all possible and continue our mission, you can buy us a virtual coffee.

Thanks so much for your patronage.
