DECEMBER 24TH 3:31 PM My body is numb. I don’t know where I am. My vision is blurry. I can’t seem to focus on anything. It’s bright, that much I know, and I squint and blink to clear my eyes. My head throbs, my temples literally pulsate. There’s a general spinning sensation I …View full post
— Imagine an infinite ocean that must end. This ocean has fish with tails made of ice, dust, and gas and when they mate the water shines with incandescence. They swim around, between, and occasionally into solitary whales that fill their part of the ocean with a dying glow. The sharks devour everything from the …View full post
The hills of Shell Ridge used to be underwater, He said as we walk along the trails, Searching for minute signs in the Rocks scattered across the path. Hidden in their crevices, Patterns of veins, Curvaceous whorls, May perhaps be lurking. Stepping on the past As we walked with our eyes Peering up at the …View full post
It is a toss up between A smoky dive and a midnight bar Pouty puckered pomegranate lips perfect the scene As she steps out of the sleek car His sweet mistress songbird opens her mouth, begins He closes his eyes, lost in an amber haze Her voice is lacquered with the gloss of sins And …View full post
So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land. –Peter Pan Dank darkness, rocky walls, and dirt. These were the things that Humo knew, the things that had surrounded him his whole life. So …View full post
It was 1997 when The Wallflowers had their big hit. All winter long through the dreary Vancouver rain, the song would drone through the landscape on never-ending rotation. On the rare occasion I could afford to go out to Tommy’s Bar and Grill, the DJ would usually play the song at least three or four …View full post
Etzella felt little droplets of snow hit her cinnamon red cheeks before melting down her face like tears. The young girl shivered underneath her rough, red coat that swallowed her in a hooded embrace. She had a mismatched red sock hat with a grey pompom ball at its end covering her scalp and ears under …View full post
he held her hand when the world fell apart in fissures of spooling moon silver, and when the ivory stars refused to shine their light upon their life, but when he needs her she is always gone off into some distant sea of obscurity; where he cannot find her — …View full post
Ralph had been driving for nearly three hours by the time he came to Indianapolis, and he knew then he would soon reach his mother’s home in Stein and commence the ordeal of Christmas. As the city emerged on the icy road in front of them, Deborah, Ralph’s wife, asked if he wouldn’t like her …View full post
your teeth cut into my marrow with words that are jagged as glass, they wound me with the resonance that reverberates in the room in echoes of missives from the lips of the wind, I do not know why your heart aims to fling arrows into my soul yet you do not cease your senseless …View full post

We are just thrilled to announce the publication of our second issue. After carefully considering all our submissions (translation: hours of reading that we enjoyed just a little too much while we should have been doing the laundry or some other such boring activity) we have assembled a selection of the very best. Click the Issue Two button of our navigation bar to put off your own lurking laundry and immerse yourself in the wonderful worlds of our writers.
Our deepest thanks to all those who submitted, and heartfelt encouragement to those who would like to submit in the future. We’re thinking of a theme and cooking up a clever title for Issue Three even now …

Welcome to Laptop Lit Mag™, the literary magazine written by and for the Millennials Generation!
The laptop is a universal symbol of the up and coming generation. It is extremely rare to find a twenty-something without one. We used to go to the library to quench our thirst for a good story, we now power up our laptops.
Laptop Lit Mag is a place for young readers and writers to share their love of words from their laptops. We are a one of a kind generational publication, meaning we feature work written by people of the Millennials Generation for people of the Millennials Generation. Our authors are the up and coming writers of tomorrow, writing about what is important to them now. Their writing, from contemporary lit to fantasy, exemplifies what it means to be a part of the twenty-first century.
Our content speaks to a fresh audience. We are dedicated to giving emerging writers a voice and to providing young readers with a place to read work that is relevant to them. There is nothing more frustrating to a young writer than being unable to find somewhere that is open to your new style. There is nothing more aggravating to a young reader than drowning among stories that do not interest you. Laptop Lit Mag satisfies both these needs.
We are currently hosting an open call for submissions for our inaugural issue. Please refer to our Submission Guidelines page for specific instructions.
This content can also be viewed at www.laptopliterarymagazine.com™ and www.laptoplitmagazine.com™.
