Editorial Focus

Under the Gum Tree is a storytelling project, publishing creative nonfiction in the form of a micro-magazine.

Tips From the Editor

Under the Gum Tree is a reader supported, quarterly literary arts magazine, publishing creative nonfiction and visual art. We believe in the power of sharing a story without shame. Too much of the human experience gets hidden behind constructed facades based on what we perceive the world expects from us. Stop hiding. Live a story. Tell it without shame. And by without shame, we mean that the authors and contributors featured in our pages own their story, even the ugly parts, and share it with pure, unadulterated, raw, candid vulnerability.
