About ArLiJo

Robert Giron

Arlington Literary Journal, an e-journal known as ArLiJo, is located in Arlington, Virginia.


It was established by Gival Press and will continue to publish winners of the annual Gival Press Oscar Wilde Award and the annual Gival Press Short Story Award.

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
