Serendipity is a new literary journal specializing in poetry, prose, and art that engages with issues of race, gender, sexuality, class, ability, and intersecting identities. The journal is a collaborative effort between BLLC conveners S. (Stephanie) Andrea Allen and Lauren Cherelle.
Serendipity seeks work that explores, celebrates, and interrogates all aspects of our identities; and work that delights and beguiles our readerly sensibilities. We will produce an online bi-annual publication, (Winter and Summer), and an annual print publication featuring fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art. Our goal is to publish exciting work that amplifies marginalized voices, particularly that of same-gender loving women of color.
Editors: S. Andrea Allen and Lauren Cherelle
