Recommendation: Magazine

Lorainekv recommends…



Creative friends, here’s a new way to showcase your work! Magazine launched on January 15, 2014 and submissions are open year round. Neat! Check out the following press release to learn more about this great new literary platform. Magazine, an electronic publication designed to showcase queer artists without requiring queerness of content, releases their first issue today. Featuring authors including Laura Krughoff, Mandy Gutmann-Gonzalez, Sarah Maria Medina, Jonathan Mack and many more, this inaugural issue is 71 pages of both new and established authors and art-makers.

The Call to Adventure also features artists Hannah Brush, Krista Coppedge and an interview with Stefana McClure, whose work is currently on exhibit in the MoMA.

The queer community has already expressed a great interest in The Call to Adventure and the groundswell of support promises wonderful things to come:

“ is proof that queer writers have complicated, beautiful, and haunting stories to tell—and that even when they include queerness, identity is far from the whole story. The work in this issue is worth it for any reader, regardless of sexual orientation, and I can’t wait for Issue 2.” — Rachel Kincaid, senior editor for Magazine was founded by Alison Osworth and Sarah Hansen, the fiction and the poetry editor respectively. The Call to Adventure is available for free online at and also on Kindle or PDF for $4.99. For more information, feel free to contact Alison at

    YES FINALLY. I can’t stand it when “queer art” or whatever *necessarily* refers to the querness of the content. Why can’t I create whatever I want? YES.
