About pendora

Pendora is an online magazine promoting new ideas and brilliant writing. We focus on literature, film, and art, featuring weekly articles, reviews, essays, creative non-fiction, as well as original artwork, short fiction and poetry by new and upcoming writers.

We started in January 2016 as a small collective of writers and artists and have since grown to a platform for more creative people to showcase their work.

We love literature, and particularly books that have a strong sense of aesthetic, innovative fiction, non-fiction focus on the Self: literature concerned with memory and personal experiences, which strip away elements of conventional fiction in order to reveal a genuine truth within the author's Self. 

We like films that put an emphasis on cinematography and express their themes through cinematic language (as opposed to more artificial means like exposition in dialogue). That said, we do love well-written and well-delivered dialogue. But we focus more on contemporary films that experiment and create their own distinctive look, and which we think might go on to become classics (or at least cult classics) because of their visual excellence. 

At the moment it is a self-sustained passion project, but if you like the content posted on the magazine, you can support us! This way Pendora can grow and be able to pay successful fiction and poetry contributors, and maybe even be in print someday. You can check out our Support page, where you can donate any amount you are willing to, or choose to join our Patreon, where you can get all kinds of rewards for your support.
