ISSUE 01 | HISTORY
Our debut issue includes poems and short stories by young women of colour based on the theme, 'History'. From meditations on the nature of memory/trauma, national identity, and modern relationships, to a reimagination of a famous fairytale, the range in this 14-piece issue is wide.
LACUNA LITERARY MAGAZINE
Lacuna is a literary magazine, based at the London School of Economics, that publishes the writing of young women and people who identify with women's experiences. The name 'Lacuna' is a Latin word meaning 'void' and encapsulates exactly the idea that birthed it. We did not see a space at LSE for WoC writers to meet each other and collaborate. We aim to provide a platform and a community for such creatives to experiment in a way that makes them feel held. Lacuna now accepts submissions from across the world (from WoC and PoC who identify with women's experiences) but remains anchored at LSESU.
