Lunch Ticket is Antioch University MFA program’s student and alumni-run literary magazine. Established in 2012, the name Lunch Ticket pays homage to Antioch University’s focus on issues that affect the working class and underserved communities. Lunch Ticket publishes weekly blog posts and columns, including Amuse-Bouche and Midnight Snack, and bi-annual issues featuring poetry, creative nonfiction, fiction, flash prose, literary translation, writing for young people, visual art, and feature interviews.
We publish work that upholds the vision and values of the Antioch MFA program. We aim to center writers and artists who have been marginalized and underrepresented, or historically misrepresented, and encourage submissions that engage with issues of racial, social, economic, gender, and environmental justice. Our teams read and look for work that plays with form and strives for a more just world.
