List of Literary Journals for LGBTQ Writers, Women, and Writers of Color

bookrainbow

In a previous post, I mentioned my desire to compile a list of journals and presses that exclusively focus on publishing underrepresented voices, such as women, LGBTQ writers, and writers of color. I’ve finally managed to pull something together that hopefully may prove to be a good starting point and resource for those writers who may wish to find a good home for their writing. Or maybe readers who wish to read more widely or diversely. Or editors who strive to be more inclusive. Quite a few of these are hybrid magazines too (women of color, Latino/a queer writers, etc.).

If you know of any that are not mentioned here, don’t be afraid to send me a message! I’ll try to update it whenever I make a new discovery.

(Note: I tried to focus only on those journals and presses that seem to be still open to submissions and aren’t yet defunct.)
