Allium A Journal of Poetry & Prose publishes work that is provocative, evocative, and bold. We are about inclusion—representing the range and diversity of writers’ voices. We believe the art of writing is an exploration of a complex and evolving world. We are dedicated to promoting the finest work of fiction, nonfiction and poetry written by both recognized and emerging writers, in a variety of forms that range from traditional to experimental. We want the work we publish to embody a sense of journey and discovery.
