Luna Luna is an online diary and community dedicated to making space for the light, dark, and shadow. We cover mainly literature, ritual living and wellness, personal essay, identity, and idea. Part literary journal, part grimoire, we are a safe space for women, queer people, non-binary folks, and people of color. Luna Luna is made for and by witches, dreamers and creators.
Light & Darkness
Our content is organized into two very generalized sections: dark and light. For us, the LIGHT is where we talk art and opinion, growth and creativity. You’ll find most of our book and essay content here. The DARK holds a space for those intimate things we hold close to our hearts — where ritual and ghosts live. You’ll find most of our magical living content here.
Who we are
We are feminist and intersectional; we are advocates and allies to the marginalized. We are committed to great writing, authenticity and vulnerability.
It's important that we make something clear: all rituals, spells, and practices found here are not to be substituted for compassionate, thorough professional help. We think of our spells, rituals and practices as tools to augment one's mental health arsenal.
Our editorial process
The site is entirely volunteer-run. We started in 2013 with 10 friends and have since grown to hundreds (thousands?!) of contributors from all over the world. (Meet our amazing editorial team here.) We read and respond submissions as often as we can, and we try to publish anywhere between 5-15 new pieces of content per week.

Fun stuff: Entropy listed us in their Best of 2018: Presses, Magazines, Publishers & Journals roundup. BuzzFeed called us a "girl squad you need to know," while Elle Australia mentioned us in their Season of the Witch feature.
