ABOUT THE SELKIE
The Selkie is a non-profit literary magazine with ‘representation’ as its core value. It supports and publishes work by individuals who self-identify as underrepresented in terms of race/ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, sex, gender, socio-economic class, neurodivergence, disability, and refugee/immigration status.
Watch the online launch for Stories of Rebellion and hear our authors talk about their contributions, in addition to reading little sneak peeks from the collection. The video is available on YouTube.
