BRICKrhetoric is an online literary and visual arts journal. Established in Chicago in 2009, BRICKrhetoric features original poetry, prose, artwork and photography with a multicultural and urban focus.
BRICKrhetoric is committed to providing a canvas for emerging and established writers/artists alike to illuminate topics in the humanities for the discovery and enjoyment of our readers.

BRICKrhetoric was founded in November 2009 on the campus of East-West University in Chicago, IL. We initially invited submissions from students, faculty, staff & friends of the university, and were happy to produce our first three issues.
In December 2010, BRICKrhetoric became independently-run by a small group of volunteers, and through the addition of our K-12 subsidiary, we shifted our focus to include students throughout Chicagoland (and beyond) to:
- · support literacy
- · promote cross-cultural perspective
- · celebrate the literary/visual arts, and
- · provide a canvas for writers/artists (of any age) to share their work
