Mudfish is a journal of poetry, art, and fiction

It takes its title from the storyteller’s stool in Nigerian art. In totally diverse ways, the poems each tell a story. Mudfish has featured work from the best established and emerging artists and poets – including John Ashbery, Charles Simic and Frank Stella – since it burst onto the poetry scene in 1984. The journal reflects the passionate, edgy, intimate voice of the 21st century. The Mudfish Individual Poet Series are companion volumes, each showcasing the work of a single Mudfish poet.
