Allium are flowering plants that include hundreds of species. Alliums vary dramatically in size, shape, and color, and are cultivated as both vegetable and ornament. They naturally resist taxonomy. 
Our Allium aspires to create a similar resistance by publishing diverse creative voices, recognized and emerging writers, and a variety of forms and genres from the traditional to the experimental.

Allium accepts simultaneous submissions, requests a maximum page length of fifteen pages for fiction, and does not seek previously published work.

We’re looking for hybrid forms—stories that explore the spectrum of the human experience, stories that take risks and live in our imaginations long after the last printed word, stories that invite us into private rooms and into worlds of the writer’s own creation. We’re looking for authors with an awareness of diverse points of view. We welcome voices from  BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and neurodiverse communities that have been underrepresented in literature.
