Our literary magazine, Serendipity, specializes in poetry, prose, and art that engages with issues of race, gender, sexuality, class, ability, and intersecting identities. Submissions for our annual print issue are open. We are particularly interested in work that grapples with the intersections of race, gender, disability, and sexuality in our current socio-political climate. LGBTQ women of color are strongly encouraged to submit.

Sinister Wisdom
Our co-founders are guest editing a forthcoming issue of Sinister Wisdom. Publishing since 1976, Sinister Wisdom is a multicultural lesbian literary and art journal that publishes four issues each year. For this special issue of Sinister Wisdom, we seek personal essays, stories, interviews, oral histories, poetry, short academic papers, and other original writing and art focused on lesbian writing collectives.

Writing collectives/groups have played an integral part in lesbian literary history, and we seek to interrogate the role they have played in supporting personal writing, as well as their impact on the larger lesbian literary community.
