A Little Bit About The Lincoln Underground

We published The Lincoln Underground from 2012 - 2016, with sixteen print issues and one final electronic issue. Find some of our previous issues at here.

From the beginning, what has set us apart is that we take submissions from anyone and everyone, and consider all submissions equally. We do not look at previous publishing credits, education, or other appearance-related factors, but we publish content solely based on the merit of the work. This has led to us publishing work by grandmas, kids, and poets who have been writing in notebooks privately for years, but never shared their work with anyone. We treat all work with respect. Though we are not currently taking submissions, we appreciate your interest in our magazine and hope you will find a copy and enjoy the great writers, poets, and artists found within.
