Much like the Greek Klefts exploited by the ancient Ottoman Empire, we at Kleft Jaw seek to transcend the current reality of modern poetry/prose. We simply cannot believe, will not believe, will not lie & say there are limitations to the human consciousness. There is a magna-force of possibility, teeming inside all of us, and that's why we exist- to invoke the transcendental realist spirit in contemporary writing- to establish a new aesthetic, to make words dangerous again.

We are a newly formed online venture with 2 scheduled print anthologies coming out in the year 2013.

Kleft Jaw's online operations will run on a quarterly basis, beginning in the Spring 2013. Our first print anthology will be comprised of both new material and past contributions we find fit the true aestethic of transcendental realism.
