The Diamond Line was originally named such in homage to our state gem, but a name carries the narrative weight of its symbols. Someone could cut into their very soul with a diamond, and that’s how poems and stories and paintings are created; by being carved out with something so sharp it leaves us raw. As such, we are dedicated to showcasing emotional truths and authenticity. We have committed ourselves and our magazine to allowing people to dig as deep as they can until they find their own rare and beautiful gem.

The Diamond Line showcases original visual art, fiction, and poetry by University of Arkansas undergraduate students.

Current Issue: Volume 1, Issue 2 (2020)

With all that 2020 has brought, our team was also faced with the challenge of forging new ways to come together for the magazine’s production. We created Issue 2 from fifteen separate spaces, communicating only through virtual platforms. While none of us would call these circumstances ideal, we each gained immeasurable insight into the work that goes into curating a literary magazine, and we will hold this experience close to us long after we graduate. We believe that the writings and artwork in this magazine best represent the talent of undergraduates here at the University of Arkansas. We have taken great care in showcasing their artistry, and our editorial teams have chosen each piece of fiction, poetry and visual art with our readers in mind. We extend our thanks to every individual who contributed to the production and publication of this issue. Despite the challenges this year has brought, we hope this magazine will allow readers to escape the chaos of real life for a short while. We are immensely proud to present the fall 2020 issue of The Diamond Line, and we hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed making it.
