Jostle Magazine is an arts and culture magazine based in Phoenix, Arizona. With a detached awareness of the realities of life on the ground, we seek to create elbow room for ourselves in those abstract sanctuaries where others cannot (yet) reach us. Electoral politics is pointless, and activism of almost any kind is a waste of time. Why aspire to be some Mr Potato-Head barbarian when you can immortalize yourself in the world of Melrose Place fanfiction? We publish poems, short stories and wild social commentary by writers who know how to shrug their shoulders and say “Who cares? lol.”
