About Pedestal:
Based in Charlotte, NC, launched its first bimonthly issue on the winter solstice, December 21, 2000. In July 2001 an online art gallery was added, showcasing original works of art from artists around the world. The Pedestal Magazine is the vision of published writer and entrepreneur John Amen. Mr. Amen’s mission for the magazine is to publish a premier literary journal, exclusively online, featuring new and established writers and visual artists. Many bimonthly issues include in-depth interviews with a featured writer and visual artist, along with examples of their work, as well as poetry, fiction, and non- fiction from writers around the world. In July 2003 the magazine began publishing select book reviews. Additional features include the bookstore and the forum.

The goal of The Pedestal Magazine is to provide a platform for authors and literary critics to publish work and stimulate thought and discussion. Published in each issue are 15-20 works of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and book reviews from writers around the world. All published writers are paid professional rates.
