Hello and welcome!
Falchion Publications is a cross-disciplinary-cross-cultural online enterprise, featuring a blend of original fiction and poetry, essays, original art, fashion, current events, culture, film and theater, music and dance, travel, politics and political satire, science and technology, and more.
At Falchion we blend genres, categories, and styles into a tasteful olio. By doing so we seek to enrich and inspire readers from different backgrounds and areas of interest, bring about awareness of aesthetics, to eschew elitism and/or the stringently academic, and offer new artistic and intellectual perspectives. Perhaps most importantly, Falchion encourages others to engage where they might otherwise not typically do so.
Here at Falchion we earnestly believe that the written word, and the arts in general, add texture and beauty to life, allow us to remain vigilant to the world, and ultimately help us preserve ourselves from the dreary existence that would be without creative spark and thought. We thus strive to promote art in all its forms, providing a platform for both up-and-coming and established authors and artists to display their talent and perception.
Most of our contributors are award-winning artists and/or regarded professionals in their respective fields, united together through their abiding love of art and the desire to create something of both value and originality.
For the curious mind–the falchion is a Medieval, one-edged sword with the might of an ax and the adaptability of a sabre. The name originates from French and in general means “broad.” One unique characteristics of the falchion is its multi-functionality: the sword was equally useful in times of peace and in times of war as it was used both as a farming tool by peasants and as a fighting weapon by nobility.
Falchion Publications’ magazine is available through a modest monthly or annual subscription, which allows us to sustain the quality of the magazine and continue researching, writing, and creating informative and inspirational pieces for you, our readers.
