Although The Anti-Philistine is often critical of American literature, many American authors contributed to the periodical such as Ambrose Bierce and Francis and Edgar Saltus. Most of the literature included in the periodical is short fiction with a few inclusions of poetry and fables. The periodical also includes reviews, announcements, biographies, and a recurring section on new books.
