Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Founded in San Francisco in 2009, THE RUMPUS is one of the longest running online literary and culture magazines. Some early contributors include Roxane Gay and Cheryl Strayed who helped establish our reputation for publishing risk-taking authors. We continue to be one of the last independent platforms for both established and emerging voices.
