Construction is a political, cultural, and literary online magazine that updates during the week. It is an independent start-up that does not break news but publishes critical and informative content. Since its inception in June 2011, it has featured interviews with figures such as Steve Hindy, president of the Brooklyn Brewery, and The New Yorker’s Joan Acocella; profiles of the biographer Robert Caro and the literary critic Edward Said; Benjamin Taylor’s introduction to the selected letters of Saul Bellow; a wide array of political and cultural commentary; and a diverse, international collection of original fiction, poetry, and visual art by known and unknown artists alike. Construction exists to fill a content void left by major newspapers, real-time aggregators, topic-specific sites, and personal bloggers.

We are still accepting submissions and would love to read your work. Please see submissions for guidelines. While most publications are on hold as we work on making some enhancements, we will try to tide you over by continuing to publish new poetry. We will be back to full speed in the Fall. Stay tuned for updates!
