Plenitude Magazine aims to promote the growth and development of LGBTTQI literature through the regular online publication of literary fiction, nonfiction, poetry, reviews, and cultural criticism by both emerging and established LGBTTQI writers, and to foster a community through an exchange of ideas and resources. Our view of queerness centres Black and Indigenous people, people of colour, trans people, people with disabilities, youth, and elders.
We define queer literature as that which is created by LGBTTQI people, rather than that which features queer content alone. That said, we recognize that Plenitude readers are hungry for exceptional works that reflect queer histories, cultures, experiences, and sensibilities. Through our growing editorial collective, we aim to represent a diversity of identities and editorial expertise, thereby encouraging an equivalent diversity of submissions and readers.
Plenitude aims to complicate expressions of queerness through the publication of diverse, sophisticated literary writing, from the very subtle to the brash and unrelenting.
