About ArLiJo

Robert Giron

Arlington Literary Journal, an e-journal known as ArLiJo, is located in Arlington, Virginia and is sponsored by Gival Press.

The intent of ArLiJo is to feature a variety of authors/poets/artists from around the globe whose work provokes readers to contemplate issues, etc.

The work chosen promotes understanding and sensitivity across borders, even if initially the work may cause one to take a double-take.

Editor-in-Chief, Robert L. Giron
