An online journal of poetry and prose produced by Pratt Institute’s MFA in Writing, The Felt is interested in the creation and cultivation of emancipatory poetic spaces for felt sentiments that have been marginalized, displaced, or estranged from the dominant culture. Like the textile of its namesake, The Felt is an intricate entanglement unlimited in every direction. We strive to publish disobedient and daring work that invites departure, resistance, engagement, and the collaborative, tender-hearted making of new knowledge.
*Felt is the anti-fabric. An intricately entangled assemblage of fibers, felt is in no way homogenous but is nevertheless smooth. Unlike fabric, which is held in fixed position by knots on all sides, felt is infinite in every direction, unfolding in continuous variation. Felt is the textile of nomadic peoples, those who exist outside of the organizational State, engaging a work in progress, whether that be philosophical, political, artistic, or spiritual.
