YES FEMMES is an online experiment that publishes writing and digital projects working toward a femme aesthetic. We're interested in writing that explores the limits of the body, that's campy or fannish, that engages with witchcraft or the occult, that has an excess of feeling, that looks to animals and plants as models or collaborators, that considers how digitality might be femme, and that moves toward the horizon of queerness. We plan to publish irregularly, according to our feelings, the cycles of the moon, and other factors.
YES FEMMES was conceived of first as a reading series by Sam Cohen and Gina Abelkop, while they were floating together in the ocean off the coast of a Malibu beach. Its digital iteration is made in northeast Los Angeles, edited by Sam Cohen and designed by Sandra Rosales.
