About Us

The Arkansas International seeks to publish the best literature from the United States and abroad.

Launched by the University of Arkansas Program in Creative Writing & Translation, The Arkansas International is published biannually and considers previously unpublished fiction, poetry, essays, comics, and works in translation.

The Arkansas International is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit publication committed to supporting writers and translators. Our publication is made possible by grants from the Program in Creative Writing & Translation and the Department of English at the University of Arkansas, as well as the generous support of individuals.
