    I haven’t heard of ZAUM before, but I’m always excited to check out fellow student-run publications! This is a good chance to submit if anyone missed Superstition Review’s submission period.

    ZAUM seems like a perfect partnership; it is similar to “Superstition Review” in a lot of ways. I like the colors of the ad cover. Informative Twitter page too!
