Luna Luna is an online diary and community all about literature, intersectional feminism, story, sex, identity and the occult. At Luna Luna, you'll find everything from DIY rituals and interviews with filmmakers (hello, Anna Biller, The Love Witch) to poetry and personal essays.
Our goal is to explore the space between darkness and light (not to be confused with 'good' or 'bad'), and between dream and reality. The shadow is our home.
Our content is divided into two very generalized sections: dark and light. For us, the light is where we talk art and opinion, growth and creativity. The dark may be those things we tend to keep quiet — more secret, maybe a bit dangerous, maybe at odds with social norms, maybe indulgent. We believe both are necessary and not necessarily a binary. We believe it is healthy to have a balance.
People are multidimensional, so we certainly don't want to curate only one point of view. We always aim to be feminist and intersectional; we are advocates and allies to the marginalized. And while we are a community, we maintain that good writing always comes first. Before bios, before opinions, before names. Lastly, it's important that we make something clear: all rituals, spells, and practices dedicated to self-care or therapy are just that—not to be substituted for compassionate, thorough professional help. We think of our spells, rituals and practices as tools of augmenting one's mental health arsenal.
Our editorial process
The site is entirely volunteer-run. Yep, that's 100% of it. We started in 2013 with 10 friends and have since grown to well over 1000 contributors from all over the world. Meet our amazing editorial team here. We read submissions daily, and we try to publish anywhere between 5-15 new pieces of content per week. Submissions here.
