To fight what is happening in this country, help us launch a new magazine, Roar: Literature and Revolution by Feminist People.
Roar will feature new content daily, and launched on inauguration day, January 20, 2017. (Submission guidelines will be posted soon and submissions will open January 23 on Submittable.) Sarah Sandman is Executive Editor and Jeet Khalsa is Managing Editor.   Roar's section editors are Porochista Khakpour (fiction), Bethanne Patrick (media), Ashley Perez (interviews), Keith S. Wilson (poetry). Sherilyn Lee is our PR Director.  Sara Finnerty is Development Director. Anna March serves as a section editor (politics/culture) and is Publisher. See the great rewards for your gift listed at right and donate to support Roar now. Watch this video to be inspired and learn more about us and our values:
Roar was born November 9, 2016 -- a few hours after Hillary Clinton gave her concession speech on that terrible day after the election. ROAR is a direct response to the woman hating, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, environment savaging, bigoted-in-every-way kakistocracy of a presidency and administration we face.








Mission Statement:

We are a magazine of intersectional feminist resistance , committed to inclusivity and concerned with all marginalized people. We promote the understanding that justice for all must be sought as a whole. Our focuses include:  the treatment of women and girls;  gender, race and class justice;  justice for all LGBTQQIA+ folkx;  justice for people with disabilities; the "Black Lives Matter" movement, police brutality and mass incarceration; the treatment of Native and Indigenous people; immigration, immigrants of all statuses and the plight of refugees; the lives of the economically impoverished; abortion rights, access and funding; the treatment of people with diverse religious traditions, especially Muslim, Jewish and Sikh people; sex and sexuality; climate change and the environment.  We want to keep an eye on the fascism happening in our government and our county and fight it.  Through the finest writing,  Roar seeks to inspire and challenge, to promote resistance and revolution and to change hearts and minds.


We want to offer a space for politically engaged art.

We are tired.

We are weary.

We are brokenhearted.

We are scared.

So, we fight.

Roar seeks to shift established systems that benefit the few and offers a provocation of ideas and practical suggestions of what you can do to be in the fight.



Roar will publish fiction, poetry, the best in essays about politics and culture, interviews ("The Speculum Spotlight") and more. We will have strong coverage of books and media in various forms. We have our own advice columnist, "Dear Salty" (Susan Nordmark) -- offering wise counsel about how to live in these times. And, knowing they ARE rough times, her sidekick, The Old Salt, will offer fab recipes for cocktails and comfort foods to get us through. Click the DONATE NOW button to see our great rewards for your gift and support Roar.

Ours is an activist agenda and our standing features will include "The Week in Hate" by Sandra de Helen, taking a look at the horrors of the past week and what good people are doing to specifically combat those, a roundup by Joyce Hayden of the best feminist writing about the current state of events, a focused look by Joan Hanna at the work that's making a difference for the better right now on critical issues of our time. Annika Barranti Klein will bring us "The Roar Meter" every week -- a feminist spin off of the old Haper's Index.  Betsy Aimee will curate the "Polarized" section, a weekly look at a group of photographs that together tell an important story about who we are. We will offer a weekly letter from around the globe, rotating among writers in Tunisia, Berlin, India, Mexico. Click the DONATE NOW button to see our great rewards for your gift and support Roar.

We are not -- and never will be -- a non-profit organization. We rely on the financial support of people just like you who believe this work is important, who cheer this kind of writing, who want our voices heard, who believe that it is important to support this effort, and who know that it's up to them to do it.   All writers are offered an honorarium for their work. Your donations fund paying writers and editors and all the other expenses of the publication .  Funds are handled by March Media/Anna March, Roar's publisher. If you want Roar to exist, it's up to you to make it so. Click the DONATE NOW button to see our great rewards for your gift and support Roar.

Please give whatever you can. Please share this. Thank you.
