Publisher’s description: Allium, a journal of poetry & prose, from Columbia College Chicago’s Department of English and Creative Writing, is a multi-genre print and online publication.
Allium are flowering plants that include hundreds of species. These plants’ dramatic variation in size, shape, and color, are cultivated as both vegetable and ornament—they naturally resist taxonomy. Our Allium aspires to create a similar resistance by publishing diverse creative voices, recognized and emerging writers, and a variety of forms and genres from the traditional to the experimental.
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.
