Published by the Institute of Arts and Social Engagement, Magnolia: A Journal of Women’s Literature publishes “socially engaged works of fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry that interact with and challenge social injustices of our time.”
Misty Ericson, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of HerCircleEzine.com, an online portal of women’s creative arts and activism, writes in the journal’s foreword: “Magnolia: A Journal of Women’s Literature, and its precursor, HerCircleEzine.com, were established in an effort to bridge the gap created by both political and market censorship, as a space wherein women can speak freely the truth of female experience, to draw our attention to the atrocities of our world, and to act as catalysts for social, cultural, and political change.”
With selections chosen and introduced by Gayle Brandeis, Volume One features works by Mary Akers, Andrea Berthot, Lorraine Caputo, Stephanie Dickinson, Bonnie Fortune, Ana Garza G’z, Eliza Kellley, Kathleen Kirkm Sari Krosinsky, Peggy Landsman, Simone Martel, Adriana Paramo, Carol Smallwood, Sami Schalk, Jill Stukenberg, Sheila Thorne, and Linda Whittenberg.
