Our Mission

Black Girl Magic Lit Mag is a literary magazine created to address the lack of diverse, non-majority voices and characters in speculative fiction, especially Black women’s voices. Black Girl Magic Lit Mag believes that by showcasing stories featuring Black female voices and characters we can create a reflection of ourselves in the literature that we love, in a world where our images are constantly controlled, shaped, and distorted by those outside of our experiences .

We recognize all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) QUILTBAG, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities. Our mission is to increase visibility for diverse authors, specifically women of color, and empower a wide variety of readers in the process.
