Flower Crown Magazine is a new digital magazine for young intersectional feminists! We are about having fun but not at the expense of the marginalized. We believe in the power of choice but we believe in examining those choices as well. We believe in body positivity! We believe in sex positivity that doesn't exclude asexuals. We believe in fighting for our sisters not just our cisters. And we resent and call out the silencing and erasure of women of color. We believe in self love. We are a lifestyle magazine with a socially conscious lean.
We are currently looking for dynamic, talented, and hardworking spring interns. Our ideal candidate is a self-starter, eager to learn, and passionate about contributing to our mission of creating books that promote freedom of expression and social justice.

*takes a deep breath* WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT ACTIVELY DISCOURAGES FEMALE INTELLIGENCE BY PAINTING IT AS A NON FEMININE TRAIT AND SETS UP MALES TO BE IN POSITIONS OF ACADEMIC SUPERIORITY DESPITE THERE BEING NO CORRELATION BETWEEN GENDER AND ACADEMIC ABILITY thank you for your time
spoopy-bat-trash asked: I went and checked out the first two issues of your magazine, and they're really cool! I spread the message because I can't donate right now, but I was wondering if it would ever be possible to buy print copies? I prefer print over digital format (and the digital format is sometimes hard on my eyes).
Hey! Thanks so much for spreading the message. We’d love to move to print one day! It can just be expensive to do that. It can definitely be a part of our growth as we’d like to actually have copies of it as well!
