Blotterature Literary Magazine



Blotterature is an online literary magazine, started in August 2013 by a few Region Rats who came together via The Literary Underground and college. “Blotterature” is an obsolete term that means non-high-brow literature, or non-elite. Essentially, it’s writing for the masses. Or, literature for the people. However, the staff at Blotterature believes that good literature can be for the people and not just for the “in-crowd” of literary folks, and that it doesn’t necessarily take a highly-trained artist to produce good literature, either. Therefore, our mission is to merge the creative academia with the underground, as there is value in both sides of the spectrum.
