A Mission

It was the fall of 2013 when the creators of Swine found themselves reunited in the slums of Fayetteville, and realized the need for a literary outlet in Northwest Arkansas. There is a large number of writers, artists, and downright interesting people with meaningful stories in the area who deserve an opportunity to share their work with the community outside of oral storytelling. We at the Swine want our submissions to be accessible to anyone–we do not have our eyes set only on literary genius but rather engaging, authentic stories that capture the feeling and experiences of our time in the Ozarks.

We come to you–finally–at the dawn of 2015 to offer our beloved town the chance to have its story told. Now open for submissions for our debut issue, coming this spring.
