AURORA: 2012

Poetry  ♦  Fiction  ♦  Non-Fiction  ♦  Art/Photography ♦  Interviews  ♦  Staff  ♦  Archives

Aurora is a student-led literary journal sponsored by the Department of English & Theatre at Eastern Kentucky University. We publish fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and art produced by undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at the University, as well as alumni and staff.

We are looking for unique work, regardless of sub-genre. At Aurora we hope to break a mold or two.
