Marías at Sampaguitas

We are a print & online literary magazine dedicated to amplifying the art of BIPOC & LGBTQIA+ communities, all marginalized genders, & everyone in between.

Spring/Summer 2022 Issue Submissions are Open until Feb 28!

Give us your 1960’s sci-fi effects with the wires showing, your life set to a Disney villain musical number, Met gala lewks from your tita’s closet, your ’00’s bedazzled Jansports bursting with Lisa Frank notebooks. (And if you’ve got a piece about that time you backpacked in Yosemite with your entire 10-step Korean skincare routine, we are SO down to read it.) We want loud, we want proud, we want no apologies.

Welcome to our new site!

December 17, 2021

Today, on the 3rd birthday of Marías at Sampaguitas magazine, we release our 3rd issue BINYAG to celebrate a whirlwind year full of all things new: a new website, a new look, new kasamas on our Editorial team, and a brand new sister publishing press!

For our fresh start, we made the decision to move away from Wix and host our website on WordPress. Building this new site was a process months in the making, and over the coming weeks you’ll likely see things continue to shift and change as we begin to populate this site with all the beautiful works from our community members.

In the meantime, please take a look around, and @ us on IG and Twitter to let us know what you think of the new look! For those who have work published on our previous site, don’t worry: we will continue to keep our 1.0 site accessible and linked here for all our readers.
