Seems is attached to people, not places. Founded in 1971 at Northern Illinois University, it has since moved to Lakeland University in Plymouth, Wisconsin, but runs independent of the school. Its current "person" is Jodie Mortag, assisted by a team of student editors. Seems is an irregular print publication. The magazine publishes work from around the globe and seeks to give emerging and established authors a physical space to publish in an increasingly digital world.
