About

A random sample is a statistical tool, a method by which elements of a population can be selected and closely examined, an unbiased process that allows a subset to represent the larger community.

This is Random Sample’s measure of success, although we care more about the qualitative than the quantitative. We seek to survey the most promising artistic and literary fields in order to find unique voices of the global nation, the individuals who observe, who feel, who encounter, who think, and, most importantly, who create. The sort of people who have either stumbled on or carefully collected data about human life and society and can report back to the rest of us in a meaningful and emotive way.

Our primary aim as an online literary journal is accessibility and experimentalism: we want work that yields truth, in its many forms, and speaks on behalf of the experience of the body politic. We want the random, the real, the raw, the honest. Overall, we want work that is decidedly and unabashedly human.
