About Vita Brevis Poetry Magazine

Vita Brevis Poetry

What’s Vita Brevis?

Vita Brevis Poetry Magazine is much more than a publication. It’s a community. It’s a resource. It’s a place where you can not only hone your craft, but get published, get inspired, and grow your following in the process. All-in-all, it’s the ultimate resource for emerging poets.

What’s with the Name?

Ars longa, vita brevis (art is long, life is short). It may seem strange that I chose Vita Brevis (life is short) as its title instead of Ars Longa (art is long). But this was more than appropriate. After all, the aim of this magazine is to publish work that shows a keen awareness of not only art’s beauty and longevity but life’s toils and finiteness. Reading a Vita Brevis poem is experiencing art and the human endeavor collide.

Founder & Editor

I’m studying to become a psychotherapist, but in my free time, I’m an avid reader, researcher, and writer. Besides managing Vita Brevis, I’m working on a new magazine called Mental Life, which merges philosophy and psychology into personal-development articles. Some of my personal publications can be found here.
