Roundtable Journal is a bold, powerful magazine for women exploring self, art, politics, culture, sex, discrimination and more– all told through an intelligent, authentic voice. We are a publication dedicated to representation, starting (often difficult) conversations and celebrating women in all their complexity and nuance.
Featuring candid conversations with fascinating women, compelling articles sprinkled with sarcasm for good measure, and bold photography, Roundtable returns with a powerful issue here to challenge the status quo and remind you that you are everything.
With 200 pages of visuals, articles, photo series, essays and more, Roundtable Journal is a reflective, thought-provoking read.
Who are we?
We're a group of women who decided to create the sort of publication we wanted to read!
Who's featured in Issue 02?
Cover girl, acclaimed visual artist Tony Gum speaks about the difficulties of true storytelling– as she often does through her work. London singer-songwriter Poppy Ajudha discusses the inherent politics of music. Djali Brown-Cepeda, all round creative, DJ, yogi & activist, tells us about how spaces and places define our selfhood. And painter Monica Garza gives a rare interview, and lets us in on the processes behind her popular, bad-ass paintings.
