Instead of feeling like some monolithic literary magazine, Plenitude is something I look forward to delving into. It's always a wild ride."--Xtra! Toronto"Some pieces made me snap even though nobody was there. Some pieces made me smile and some made me drink more coffee and take a five-minute breather. Each piece was amazing in its own way, and that isn’t even my lip service or my desire to make it sound great to you guys. It’s just the truth."--Autostraddle.comPlenitude Magazine aims to promote the growth and development of queer literature and film through a biannual publication (electronic and print) of literary fiction, nonfiction, poetry, graphic narrative and short film by both emerging and established queer writers, filmmakers, and artists, and to foster a community through an exchange of ideas, opportunities, contacts, and resources.We define queer literature and film as that which is created by queer people, rather than that which features queer content alone.

Plenitude Magazine (Issue 4) Reviews
The fourth issue of Plenitude is both a little new and what I’ve come to expect from this high-quality, diverse collection of writing by queer people. What’s new, you ask? Plenitude now comes in a print version! I was so excited to get mine in the mail, and then get to parade it around on BC ferries while I was reading it. Look everyone, at this awesome queer literary magazine! Did you know it’s your queer literary magazine? There’s just something about having a text in tangible, print form that just doesn’t compare to electronic versions. Fine, call me a luddite if you want to.So, what about that what-I’ve-come-to-expect part? Let’s have a look!The first story that really caught my attention was a cute bisexual first kiss story by Edmonton-based Caitlin Crawshaw. There were a few phrases that really captured the difficulty of not fitting into the homonormative narrative of identity, like “I am trapped in that awkward space between the breeders and the queers.” See my full review at:http://caseythecanadianlesbrarian.wor...
My favourite pieces were by Jay Torrence. The least favourite is up to you to decide.
