roam exists so that writers, placed at a common starting point, can journey toward conclusions only they can reach…and so that readers may enjoy the paths in between.

roam is an independent online literary magazine devoted to helping new and established writers alike find a home for their words. We are readers and writers who understand the hungry nature of language – how it calls to us, unbidden.

Writers, send us your words. Readers, lend us your minds and hearts. Let’s go on this journey together. We’re excited to see where it takes us.
