Lunch Ticket Mission Statement
Lunch Ticket strives to balance cutting edge literary and visual art with conversations about social justice and community activism. We publish author interviews, book reviews, and personal essays alongside the very best in fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, young adult lit, literary translation, and visual art from non-Antioch MFA new, emerging, and established writers.
Established in 2012, Lunch Ticket publishes full issues twice yearly, in June and December; Amuse-Bouche features every Monday, alternating between Spotlights of individual writers or artists and Writers Read book annotations; and a weekly Friday blog featuring personal essays on literary craft written by current Antioch MFA students.
Lunch Ticket’s editorial and production teams are entirely staffed by Antioch Los Angeles MFA students and alumni, allowing them to engage with the greater literary community and gain professional experience on a real-life journal.
The name Lunch Ticket pays homage to the MFA program’s and Antioch University’s historic focus on issues that affect the working class and under-served or under-represented communities.
