Carnation is a new submission-based zine! We publish art and writing created through a lens of diaspora and displacement, prioritizing contributions from BIPOC (black, Indigenous, and people of colour).

Carnation is edited by Christina Hajjar, Luther Konadu, and Mariana Muñoz Gomez. We are based out of Winnipeg, Manitoba on Treaty 1 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis Nation. Treaty 1 Territory is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples.
