Trans* Litmag THEM in Print, Accepting Submissions


Groundbreaking trans* literary magazine THEM, launched online last year, is now re-releasing its first issue in print.

If you missed out on it the first time, this is the perfect opportunity to acquaint yourself with the multigenre journal and its commitment to building a publication where contributors can, as founding editor Jos Charles puts it, “write without being afraid of addressing being trans,* but also where they don’t feel pressure to address their bodies according to cissexist expectations.”

As for their upcoming second issue, submissions are open until April 15, and THEM‘s staff is looking forward to reading and printing more “formally experimental” work that “tells a story we haven’t yet heard.”
