Mock Turtle Zine is a local, independent literary and arts publication supporting Miami Valley creatives. This zine is a collective effort that relies not only on contributors
for content but also on a talented group of volunteers that review, edit, format, print, and distribute the zine.

Please, bear with us as we construct a new website that we hope will better serve our artists, authors and audience. Check back to view the latest in poetry, prose and visual artwork. We will be publishing submissions for each new issue in this forum, beneath the “Online Issue” tab. We will continue to post slideshows of past issues under the “Past Issues” tab.
