THAT Literary Review

An AUM-affiliated literary journal striving to publish the new, the different, and the wonderful.

We feature excellently written fiction between 100 and 5,000 words in length that is surprising, relentlessly engaging, fun, and humming with vibrancy. Our stories Include compelling characters, lively but minimal dialogue, and plots charting the unexpected. Our poetry is alive and idiosyncratic and opens new vistas to the reader. We stay away from rhyming poetry, conventional forms, and love poetry unless brilliantly revisited.

THAT also showcases exceptional and moving artwork in every issue. For a free pdf copy and more information, see
