We are infinitely thankful for the opportunity and privilege to share artistic works for and by the service member, military, military family member, and veteran community.
Our belief is that every artist in this community has a unique perspective and everyone benefits from diverse creative expression.
The Line's team is composed of graduate students from the School of the Arts at Columbia University. We come from all backgrounds and aim to represent as many identities as possible, including LGBTQ+, Latinx, Black American and African American, and immigrants who served. Our ultimate goal is to create a conversation between creative works, improving our understanding of what it means to be a service member, a veteran, and a military family member. You can help us achieve that goal by submitting your creative work so your perspective can contribute to the conversation. We look forward to learning with you.
The Line Literary Review emerges with a new generation of veteran writers and artists, dedicated to those who are compelled to create reflective, representative, and cathartic content—even as wars continue to rage. Our primary focus is to publish diverse and inclusive content that bridges the gap between veterans and new audiences.
