This semester, I will be guest editing a special edition of Plum literary magazine which seeks to elevate the many voices of femininity. I’m interested in an artistic exploration of what it means to expresses and identify with the feminine today. Alongside general submissions, I am seeking poetry, prose, and visual art exploring the themes of femininity or created by femmes. — Sequoia LeBreux
