An International Journal for a Changing World

Home Beta


Welcome to Today & Yesterday, an online international literary journal published by Laughing Fire Press. We feature short stories, poems, memoirs, essays, photographs and author interviews from contributors around the world.

All of the contributors to the journal are writing about personal socially-relevant issues. This is in keeping with the theme of the journal and the mission of Laughing Fire Press: to publish literature that focuses public awareness on the social, political, cultural, economic, and ecological issues in today’s world. Today & Yesterday takes this mission one step further, though, by a accepting not only literature for publication, but also memoirs, essays, and articles that throw light not only on today’s world, but also on how the past (yesterday) is connected to and affects the present (today). For, paraphrasing the words of the philosopher George Santayana, if we forget the lessons of the past, lessons that, if we just read a newspaper or look at online news, don’t seemed to have been learned, we are doomed to repeat the past.
Laughing Fire Press invites submissions to the journal. Short stories, poems, essays, interviews, memoirs, and photographs that examine contemporary or historical socially-relevant subject matter are desired. Areas of interest include the arts, politics, popular culture, economics, science and technology, human rights, psychology, philosophy, and the environment. Submissions should be sent to
