Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Allium 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.
