Alien She Zine is an online publishing platform for women and non-binary artists and writers (but not exclusively). We publish non-fiction, flash fiction, poetry, art, and review.
We aim to be accessible and inclusive, and to publish content that is short, sharp, punchy and caters to an online readership.
We would like to acknowledge that the majority of the content in our magazine was created on stolen land. Thank you to Ronnie Scott for vouching for us as editors & writers and for this literary venture. We would like to thank The Lifted Brow, Catalyst Magazine and The Canary Press for taking us backstage to view the inner workings of a literary magazine. For showing us the energy, time and passion that goes into their publications and for passing on this fervour. We would like to thank all of our contributors for being vulnerable with us, and for giving us the chance to do justice to their creations. We would like to thank Marla Celeste, for being the best at everything art. We would like to thank our Intern, Miles Campisi, for having the highest meeting attendance rate out of all of us editors.
And we would like to thank our mothers, Toni Durrant, Michelle Murray, Cecilia Moar, Wendy Smith, Margaret Kesevan and Claire Williams for growing us, loving us and constantly finding their way into our work through an ethereal umbilical cord.
