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.
 
We hoped to portray the diverse and accepting culture here at American University of Iraq, Sulaimani. Through creative writing, we aimed to show the University has built a community that allows for students and those around them to understand and embrace the diverse struggles, traditions, and cultures in Iraq. 
 
Our VISION is to locate Iraqi writers and their themes among a wider aesthetic of international writers.
