Journal Lumen Magazine

Lumen is a project for (and by!) cis women, trans women, and nonbinary people. We are interested in poetry, fiction, personal essays, and interviews that examine how we move through the world, both as complex individuals and as members of larger communities. The conversations we are interested in are those that shed light on our stories—on our struggles, our triumphs, and all the in-betweens.

We are the quiet conversations, the confession, the uncomfortable, the indulgent and the beautiful. We publish diverse voices, we are invested in intersectional feminism, and we are are confident in our ability to make conversation happen. We aren't soft.

Journal The Matador Review

We call ourselves an "alternative" magazine; that is to say: our purpose is to promote work that is thought-provoking and unconventional. We want the controversial and the radical, the unhinged and the bizarre; we want the obsessive, the compulsive, the pervasive, the combative, and the seductive. We believe that every work of quality art has a home where it belongs, and for the "alternative", The Matador Review is a home.

Journal Maudlin House

Maudlin House is a literary experience that curates the best in experimental lit by both emerging, and established authors. We encourage you to write weird, life's too short not to. Belong to where you don’t belong. Stay up all night and drip fever sweat poetry. Create flash fiction from yelp pages. Write prose from Facebook. And always push the limit of what literature is and could be.
