ADI MAGAZINE is a new US-based literary journal rehumanizing policy.


So often, there is a vast gulf between the people most affected by policies and those making the decisions, leading to dangerous misunderstandings and flawed interventions. Through narrative journalism, experimental essays, fiction, poetry, commentary, and art, Adi celebrates the conversations often marginalized from mainstream Western debates on policy, creating a space for nuanced exploration and insisting that policy reflects lived experiences.

Adi, meaning “to strike” in Tamil, has multiple connotations. 

  1. A military intervention or attack
  2. A form of protest
  3. A euphemism used by women to describe rape
