Towering genius disdains a beaten path. It seeks regions hitherto unexplored.
Abraham Lincoln (Speeches and Letters of Abraham Lincoln, 1832-1865, Firework Press, 2015)
The title, Uncharted, characterizes the writing, art, and photography selected for publication in the literary and art magazine at Arkansas State University in Beebe. Each piece in some way interrupts the pattern of convention or illuminates the dark corners of topics unexplored.
This 2018 volume of Uncharted not only steps on new ground as the inaugural edition of the magazine, it also marks the first ever literary and art publication at Arkansas State University in Beebe. From the start, looking out at the wide expanse of possibilities for a new magazine, the territory truly was uncharted. The scope and character of the publication, developed by the student writers and artists, is a reflection of the breadth and depth of the diverse student population at ASU in Beebe.
We hope you enjoy this first edition of Uncharted and that it inspires your own unexplored ideas, creations, and conversations.
