About the Magazine


Sobotka is the screaming brainchild of two humans from Illinois, USA.

Sobotka roughly translates from Polish as “bonfire.” Bonfire literally means “bone fire” or “a fire of bones” in the English language, but has become synonymous with people conversing and connecting in a warm light of their own creation, safe from the darkness that surrounds them.

At Sobotka, we believe that original, inspiring writing comes from the need of the individual to express something felt deeply, as if in the bones, as well as the desire to share that burning feeling with others.

Ultimately, great literature results from, and serves as, a bonfire.
