We met as students of Goddard College’s MFA program and immediately knew we were meant to collaborate. Passionate about LGBTQIA++ issues, we decided to start a literary journal for those, like us, with unique experiences within queer communities– stories and perspectives that are often overlooked or go unpublished. We wanted to create a space for literary voices that live in between– however that might manifest for writers who are marginalized within the marginalized. So, inBetween Literary Journal was born.
