Under the Gum Tree, Sacramento’s premiere literary arts magazine, seeks dedicated and passionate volunteers to join our team.
Under the Gum Tree is a quarterly literary arts magazine in its tenth year of publishing. We publish creative nonfiction and visual art in the form of a micro-magazine. We believe in the power of sharing a story without shame. Too much of the human experience gets hidden behind constructed facades based on what we perceive the world expects from us. Stop hiding. Live a story. Tell it without shame. And by without shame, we mean that the authors and contributors featured in our pages own their stories, even the ugly parts, and share it with pure, unadulterated, raw, candid vulnerability.
You are someone who cares about literature, art, and the power of telling true stories. You may be a college student or a beginning freelancer who is looking for ways to build a portfolio of work, or you might be someone with a full-time day job who is looking for an inspiring project where your creative and artistic talent will be valued and appreciated. Either way, you care about affecting the world by making beautiful things that move people deeply. You want to be part of a creative, artistic community and you’re eager to contribute something unique to help our young, small magazine be as successful as it can be.
