Issue 1: Belonging
Belonging may be present in a moment, a place, or even a person. Our inaugural issue explores this theme through poetry, creative essay, and short story.
We are a brand new biannual literary magazine publishing short fiction, essays, and poetry. Each issue will publish writings inspired by a theme relevant in the intersectional feminist community. We aim to give a platform to women of color whose multitude of voices and experiences have so often been silenced, warped, or disregarded by the dominant literary landscape.
