Rusted Radishes; Beirut Literary & Art Journal. Issue 3: Nostalgia/ Progress

​Rusted Radishes: Beirut Literary and Art Journal was founded in 2012 with the intention of creating a space for both emerging and established writers who have a connection to Lebanon. Over the years, we have published diverse work from bordering countries, the diaspora, and beyond. As we evolved, we opened the submissions to people connected to the MENA region. We do not insist on creating geographic borders for submissions, but we do acknowledge that Beirut's revolving door of influences and cultures, its history, and its perch on the Mediterranean, is certainly at the heart of a unique convergence of voices.
