Launched in 2002, Hotel Amerika is already firmly established as an exciting venue for both well-known and emerging authors. Publishing unique and provocative writing in all its forms, it’s not uncommon to find traditional work alongside the experimental. Material with quirky, unconventional edges—either in form or content—are often favored by the editors. Hotel Amerika is an eclectic journal that attracts an equally eclectic audience.
