BRATTLEBORO, Vermont, May 10, 2019: It might be an understatement to say that America is filled with literary magazines—each one trying to carve its own niche as it relates to the scene. However Desmond Peeples—a Brattleboro-born writer, artist, and editor—has a different kind of vision. Peeples and a growing team of creatives are launching Mount Island, a literary magazine focused on supporting rural LGBTQ and POC writers and artists. What Mount Island brings to the table is a dedication to the visibility of rural voices that are too often muffled or erased. The magazine seeks to bridge the rural-urban gap by first connecting and empowering our most marginalized rural communities.
