Swamp Ape Review is a national literary journal founded and produced by the MFA in creative writing students at Florida Atlantic University. Our yearly print and online issues feature fiction, nonfiction, poetry, visual art, and swamp–our fifth category for works that defy genre.
Why 'Swamp Ape'?
The Swamp Ape is a legend that reflects Florida—its mythology, its weirdness—as well as the human desire to create a narrative around that which we can’t explain. Submissions to the Swamp should defy form to the extent that the piece’s creator might be unsure of where it belongs. Across all genres, we encourage pieces with a hybrid or non-traditional nature—works that subvert our expectations of both content and form and unsettle our assumptions of what is possible.
