Editorial Focus

Mandala is a word which means 'circle' in Sanskrit. Mandala is a circle which holds the universe. Mandala is a journal of art and literature published each spring by the University of Georgia's Institute for African American Studies. We publish art, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. We are a platform for explorations of race, gender, culture, and identity, and for a wide range of voices and experiences, and to that end, we publish all kinds - students and professors, dilettantes and old hands, Pushcart Prize winners and schoolkids, from our hometown of Athens, GA, and points beyond.
