This is the second issue of Lacuna Literary Magazine. The stunning range in this issue shows that our writers have engaged with the abyss in their unique ways, from the spaces between and within their identities, to the space left behind by loss. 


The boundlessness of space is, after all, what makes it so entrancing.


Lacuna Literary Magazine

Lacuna is a literary magazine, based at the London School of Economics, that publishes the writing of young women and non-binary people of colour. The name 'Lacuna' is a Latin word meaning 'void' and encapsulates exactly the idea that birthed it. We saw an absence of a space for young people of colour to express themselves through words. We aim to provide a platform for such creatives to not just explore their own ideas but also interact with each other and build a strong community that sustains itself.
