Literary Magazine


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 Black Lesbian Literary Collective conveners Stephanie Andrea Allen and Lauren Cherelle. The Black Lesbian Literary Collective is a non-profit collective (organized in North Carolina)  to bring together women with shared cultural experiences who desire a nurturing and productive writing setting.

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: Stephanie Andrea Allen and Lauren Cherelle
