Think of a genre of writing and chances are you’ll find it here. As is the case with a lot of literature, how you see us is entirely in your hands: a pleasurable pastime, an intellectual engagement or a partner in your quest for meaning. For the inquisitive reader, we hope to be all these things and more. Traditional in some ways and unconventional in others, we admire newfangled ideas, tried-and-tested literary forms and original stories. ALMA offers the finest calibre of creative exploration, from fiction and art to substantive opinions and cheeky satire. Across the categories we’ve concocted, you’ll find something or the other that triggers a thought or a smile. Raucous and contemplative, confused and curious, ALMA has a distinctive voice and an eye for all things fascinating; we're going to let you decide whether you like it or love it.
