Welcome to querencia.

Who are we?

querencia is an online literary magazine that highlights the voices of marginalized and underrepresented identities. We publish once every season, with release dates in March, June, September, and December.

What do we like reading?

We want to read from any and all BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and historically underrepresented communities who are willing to invite us into their lives and share the stories that they have within them. Give us anything that speaks to you—including your deepest moments of vulnerability, joy, heartache, triumph, laughter, and everything in between.

For writing (which includes poetry as well as works of fiction and nonfiction), we are most interested in pieces that have strong narrative voices, stir up our emotions, and leave us wanting more. We are also collecting submissions for photography and artwork.
