Our literary and art journal:

Rusted Radishes: Beirut Literary and Art Journal features exclusive works from a diverse collection of Lebanon-related writers and artists. Within its pages, you will find established and emerging writers and artists whose colorful pieces form a striking collage of fluid symbols from the Lebanese psyche in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, drama, photography, painting, graphic design, and installation art.

Housed in the American University of Beirut's Department of English, Rusted Radishes is edited by faculty member, Rima Rantisi, and a staff of AUB students and designers. The journal presents not only the best of student writing and art at AUB, but also of a broad, even international, scope. It defines its base as a Beirut publication in hopes of nurturing an evolving creative community that is equally willing to teach, learn, praise, and critique.  The submission period extends from January 1 to March 15 of each year.
