Exhume is a new literary journal seeking to amplify the voices of queer and trans people, people who have suffered trauma and other marginalized groups. We strive to publish visual art, poetry, and prose in order to help writers who discuss queerness and trauma find a home for their works. Though we especially seek submissions that discuss these topics, we accept good writing across the board.
Editors Emily Deibler, Maeve Nettles, Laurel Lowe, and Scarlett Peterson founded the journal in 2018 with the intention of helping writers with an ache to be heard find a home for their work. For now we publish online only, biannually, though we hope to consider print publication in the future.
