Syndic Cover Pages


LeRoy Chatfield – then known as Brother Gilbert –  founded  Syndic in San Francisco. California and published it 1958-1960. Fifty years later in 2010, Chatfield revived his Syndic Literary Journal and publishes it online at: syndicjournal.us


LeRoy Chatfield is an online publisher. His publications include: “Syndic Literary Journal”;  “Easy Essays“;  “Don Edwards Literary Memorial“;  &  “Farmworker Movement Documentation Project“.


Syndic Literary Journal is a labor of love without payroll.  Donations help the publisher pay for tech costs, hosting fees and out-of-pocket expenses.

2021 Publication Schedule

March 2021  –  Author/Artist  Choose Topic

Publisher’s Note: I ask authors & artists to select topics important to them. The world as we knew it has been turned upside-down,  chaos reigns supreme, and if there is a future, who knows what it will be?

  Submissions due by February 15, 2021
