Emergence Magazine


Emergence Magazine is an online publication with an annual print edition.

It has always been a radical act to share stories during dark times. They are regenerative spaces of creation and renewal. As we experience the desecration of our lands and waters, the extinguishing of species, and a loss of sacred connection to the earth, we look to emerging stories. In them we find the timeless connections between ecology, culture, and spirituality.

Emergence Magazine is an editorially independent initiative of Kalliopeia Foundation. We are located on the unceded ancestral lands of the Coast Miwok people of present-day Marin County.

Online Magazine
We believe in sharing stories that have the potential to shift ways of thinking and being in our relationship to the living world. In an age of soundbite information, we strive to engage our online audience through our ethic of “slow consumption”—not shying away from in-depth, long-form content that is both thought-provoking and evergreen. We publish essays, op-eds, photo essays, films, multimedia, and audio stories.

For information about our submission requirements, please visit our Submissions page.

Annual Print Edition
Our annual print edition considers the stories we want to seed in these mythological times. Volumes I and II are collections of essays, poems, adapted multimedia stories, and photo essays—curated and reimagined from our online magazine. Tactile and intimate, our print edition spans several hundred color-filled pages and a variety of textures of paper, inviting you to slow down and enjoy these stories over time.

Weekly Podcast
Our podcast features exclusive interviews, author-narrated essays, contributor conversations, fiction, multipart series, and more. We feature new podcast episodes weekly on Tuesdays.

We host a variety of online and in-person programs and events featuring Emergence staff and contributors, aimed at providing a space where our wider community can connect through the power of story and explore the connections between culture, ecology, and spirituality. We are excited about finding creative ways to engage with you through our online book club, workshops, immersive leadership courses, gallery installations, conversations with contributors, and live pop-up events.
