Creative Collaboration


Phables (ISSN 2375-947X) exhibits and explores the human experience as embodied in the creative work of artists, musicians, writers, and thinkers from within or outside of any tradition or background. We value those aspects of human life that resonate with people in ways that evade straightforward expression. We are interested in how people experience their lives, how they see (or do not see) unity among the diverse happenings of their lives, how they find meaning, how they experience interaction with others, and how they choose to express whatever compels them to express themselves. We give voice to the ineffable experiences of human life.
