A literary and art magazine providing college students a venue for publishing their work
Zaum has been published at Sonoma State University for over 30 years. The magazine is produced and distributed annually by students at Sonoma State University in California. The title comes from a word used to describe the linguistic experiments in sound symbolism and language creation of Russian Futurist poets.
Zaum does not have a wide circulation, but its place as a venue for college students makes it a viable venture for submissions. Looking at a copy poses a problem, however, as it is not available online, and Hekman does not subscribe.
