About The Editors
A Note from Founder and Lead Editor
for UnSung Literary Magazine
Not unlike most of us who attended college, my major was not directly correlated to my career. I was an English major, but I landed my way into the sexual/domestic violence and reproductive justice fields. Alas, I have found solace in weaving writing into my personal life and my "heartwork."
I am a Black, Queer, woman named Taneasha. I live in the south, and attended a PWI (predominantly white institution.) The necessity of safe(r) space and positive representation is something I'm extremely familiar with, and something I don't take lightly. Both the importance and simultaneous lack of these spaces motivated me to create UnSung Literary Magazine. I wanted to offer a platform for folks from my community to have their work acknowledged, shared, and appreciated.
A Note from Featured Editor
for UnSung Literary Magazine Volume II
I have always been passionate about creating spaces that are sex positive and inclusive.
As a Black, trans-masculine person, I have never been able to hide who I am in the world. People often express displeasure about how folx like me present, love, and fuck. Within erotic literature, there is a marked mainstream absence of our queer sex stories. This is why I was excited to work on this project with Taneasha. Everyone deserves a great orgasm! We hope that this anthology will serve two purposes: create accesibility to good, queer, QTPOC centered erotica, and help our readers embrace their sexual identities in new ways.
I want a future where intersections are celebrated and centered. The lack of representation in our media, even literature, is something that I work to combat. We seek to live full, authentic lives in this world. We are now demanding that our sexuality and sensuality be viewed as a primary element.
Bring us the words you've been scared to share.
