GOWANUS is an international publication of intelligent essay, short fiction and review. 

GOWANUS is not so much interested in today's news as in the bigger picture, especially how events affect the personal point of view. 

GOWANUS knows the world is not only round but varied.

GOWANUS is interested in what concerns human beings in Delhi, Bridgetown and Soweto as well as 
in Chicago, Dublin and Tokyo. 

GOWANUS is interested in everything--intelligence in both senses of the word.
