AUIS Literary Journal


Our collective mission, when we gathered in the spring of 2018 to explore the idea of establishing a literary journal, was to encourage and expose diverse literary and artistic voices related to the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani community by publishing their original fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, artwork, and photography in an annual print journal. 

We took a few journal meetings to articulate that mission: immediately, our ideas and intentions with the journal reflected the diversity of our interests in literature, our fields of study, our priorities, and our backgrounds. We kept coming upon one common goal.


Our vision is to locate Iraqi writers and their themes among a wider aesthetic of international writers.
