MISSION: Our aim at Atticus Review is to provoke and encourage conversation through the publishing of art and literature from under-represented artists and writers. We seek to give visibility to our contributors by promoting, nurturing, and supporting them, even after they’ve been published in our pages. We also aim to serve and help build the wider literary community.
Tips From the Editor
The writing in Atticus Review is unashamed, unadorned, and unafraid. We want our contributors to dig deep into wounds to uncover words that touch the heart of the heartache — not to wallow, but rather to transcend despair through art and arrive at something hopeful. The stories we love are often lonely, and sometimes ugly, but we’re also deeply attracted to the bright, bold, and hope-infused.
We like hybrid, unconventional work that pushes boundaries, elevates and edifies on an intellectual level, that investigates the inscrutable essence of a thing, that avoids artifice to stand firmly in its unique voice. We are a platform, but not a pulpit. Moralizing is best kept at Sunday School. Judgement is best kept in court.
