Aurora is a student led literary journal for the English Department at Eastern Kentucky University. Aurora is currently seeking submissions! We publish fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, short film, visual art (including photography, comics/cartoons), music, and drama. If accepted, you would be joining a group of writers and artists that have developed a literary and art culture at Eastern Kentucky University. We want to spread this culture to every department on the campus so if you have the desire to be published, we want to see your work!
