Under The Gum Tree - Issue 33 - October 2019
Under the Gum Tree is a reader supported, quarterly literary arts magazine, publishing creative nonfiction and visual art in the form of a micro-magazine.
They believe in the power of sharing a story without shame. Too much of the human experience gets hidden behind constructed facades based on what we perceive the world expects from us. Stop hiding. Live a story. Tell it without shame. And by without shame, they mean that the authors and contributors featured in their pages own their story, even the ugly parts, and share it with pure, unadulterated, raw, candid vulnerability.
Each issue of Under the Gum Tree includes seven–ten original nonfiction stories and personal essays, one photo essay, and one cover artist whose work is also featured throughout the interior pages.
Some of their previous contributors include Peter Grandbois, Sheryl St. Germain, Brenda Miller, Samuel Autman, Penny Guisinger, Laurie Easter, Renée D'Aoust, and many others.
They nominate for The Pushcart Prize every year and essays they have published have been listed as notable in The Best American Essays 2013 & 2015.
