Hello, dear readers!

After a long hiatus due to COVID-19, The Blount Truth is back and better than ever. We are currently open for submissions until midway through the spring semester (date to be decided--we'll update again soon). Here are some relevant updates you should know:

  1. To last year's accepted submitters, we're sorry to have kept you waiting for so long, but your accepted works will be in our journal this year!

  2. This year we are releasing one larger journal in the spring semester containing both new submissions and submissions from last year.

  3. The submission period is open! You can click on the submission page at the top of the page to submit works of literally any creative genre.

Who and What We Are 

The Blount Scholars Program is a selective, four-year, living and learning community at The University of Alabama that leads to a minor in Liberal Arts. Students of the Blount Scholars Program have created the Blount literary journal, The Blount Truth, to showcase young creative writers at The University of Alabama. 

Any and all students attending The University of Alabama are graciously welcome to submit to the journal.

We encourage all creative writers to apply!
