About Asterism

Asterism: an undergraduate literary journal is housed at The Ohio State University Lima campus and is edited by undergraduates. Previously called The Hog Creek Review, it has been in continuous circulation since 2007, publishing works by Ohio State Lima students and area high school students. In 2016, we made the decision to seek submissions from undergraduates from across the United States and beyond. We are dedicated to encouraging and promoting new writers.
