roam is a new online literary journal for writers and readers who long to explore the untraveled paths. It 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.

For each issue, we will lay out prompts for potential submitters to unravel, including one image prompt. Pick one, pick a few: We just want to read your work.

At this time, we are not accepting submissions. Please check back regularly, as we will be opening submissions again soon!

Read our first issue to see what kinds of things we’ve liked in the past.
