Versal is an English-language literary journal that publishes poetry, prose and art.[1] It was founded in 2002 by American poet Megan M. Garr (editor)[2] and is published by wordsinhere, a literary organization in Amsterdam, Netherlands.[3] In 2009, Poets & Writers magazine listed Versal as One of '22 lit mags that do more for your work.'[4]

Versal publishes both new and established writers from around the world, including Argentina, Uruguay, Morocco, Romania, the United Kingdom, Germany, China, South Africa, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Croatia, Hungary, the United States, Canada, France and Australia. Its editor Megan M. Garr has, in the Versal 7 and 8 editorials, on the Versal blog and in an interview,[5] discussed the connections between Versal and translocality.[6][7] Garr was also a panelist at the 2011 Prague Microfestival of Literature[8] at which translocality was a central theme. The text of Garr's presentation during the panel can be found on Versal's blog.

Versal is archived at the National Library of the Netherlands, ISSN is 1573-2207.
