Arkana, the graduate-run online literary journal of the University of Central Arkansas is staffed and edited by students in the Arkansas Writers’ MFA Program and accepts submissions from artists worldwide. The editors write, “As part of an overlooked and often misunderstood region of the US, we’re drawn to an inclusive literary tradition that extends beyond our rich southern landscape. We strive to create a space that brings together diverse voices and champions stories that embody our mission.” Issue 14 features interviews with Michael X. Wang and Matthew Salesses, as well as works by Sherri-Anne Forde, Nikki Ummel, Lucy Zhang, Sean Madden, Josephine Whittock, C. H. Weihmann, Sekhar Banerjee, Donna Steiner, Mario Duarte, Gregg Williard, and Debasish, Mishra.
