About Centaur


Centaur is an online journal publishing hybrid stories. That means experimental writing that pushes beyond genre definitions—a story on top and a prose poem underneath; half memoir and half tale; a fable connected to a memory.

Centaur publishes quarterly in honor of the seasons: May 1, August 1, Nov. 1, and Feb. 1. Look for four to eight stories in each issue, as well as one original artwork or a photo.


Lynn Mundell is a San Francisco Bay Area writer and publisher. Her fiction chapbook Let Our Bodies Be Returned to Us was published by Yemassee in 2022. Lynn is co-founder and former co-editor of 100 Word Story, as well as co-editor of Nothing Short Of: Selected Tales from 100 Word Story (Outpost 19). She got the idea for Centaur exactly halfway through 2022, when her GPS stopped working somewhere between Northern and Southern California.
