vis a tergo is an online literary magazine founded by Jeff Chon and co-edited by Valerie Valdes and Khakjaan Wessington. The phrase 'vis a tergo' is defined by Merriam Webster as 'a force acting from behind' and is most commonly used to describe the pressure that pumps blood back into the heart. To quote the editor: "I've never been very good at selling anything I do. If I were, I'd have gone a lot further in life. But bearing in mind that the whole notion of visa tergo fuels the aesthetic of the journal, I'd like to think that I champion works that are propulsive and from the heart."[1]
