We are declaring now
that all art does not exist
as something that can be created,
but rather
only received.


Poetry is the effect of a poetics that is free from intention and can exist as implication at the reader's discretion. Pick up the latest copy of KROTCH magazine for 50Kč to read cancelable & discount writing on poetics--not the American canon.

KROTCH Magazine : our attempt to fight against the language establishment which imposes content and format restrictions on poetics. Who can say what? Who can be who? What can be said and how? What should we publish so that everyone likes us? We don't care.

Celebrate local poetries!
