the blue team
Jade exists: a conflict theorist, intersectional feminist, lesbian poet, and editor-in-chief of Blue Literary Magazine & Storm of Blue Press. At age 20, she has already penned her debut poetry book, growing pains, and is in the process of accumulating enough heartbreak for a second collection.
Jade’s work primarily focuses on themes of open vulnerability, mental illness, queerness, sexuality, and political activism; said work has been published in BlazeVOX, Anti-Heroin Chic, Moonglasses Magazine, Voice of Eve, and GlitterShip Podcast, among other publications. In her spare time, Jade works as a social media intern for Sinister Wisdom & manifests her gay agenda via the Rainbow Artist Alliance.
