We are The Wanderer, a literary website committed to publishing the work of artists whose lens isn't the straight, white, cis male one that dominates our culture. If you are queer, trans, non-binary, a person of color, a woman, disabled; if you're a beginning writer or an experienced one, The Wanderer wants to read your work. We refuse to be afraid of fascists, racists, trolls and the white supremacist capitalist patriarchy in general. We are here. We will fight.
Vetch, the first-of-its-kind magazine of trans poetry and poetics, has just released a second issue.
From the paperback memoir onward, trans literature has a strong history of ruminating on temporality. What have we been? And who will we be? We look back for the sake of comparison, of revulsion, of nostalgia, of estrangement. In this issue, Vetch’s authors address temporality. Vetch takes a approach to the past ala utopian Marxist philosopher Ernst Bloch. This work sets out to use the past to “imagine a present otherwise.”
