CC: Mauve Perle Tahat, FOUNDING EDITOR

Mauve Perle Tahat is somewhat of an emerging elder in the indie publishing community having stewarded multiple publications in online and print since 2013. Starting with Lehigh Valley Vanguard (2013-2016), which was both a publication and community hub for radical thought, art, scholarship and meet-ups, Mauve also co-founded the literary magazine Rag Queen Periodical (2014-2019) with Kailey Tedesco in 2014. Mauve is a PhD in carceral literary studies and their research concerns the ways writing the self is mediated by the forces of racial capitalism. An educator in institutions and at-large since around 2010, her favorite mantra about writing is that it is a “habit of attention.”
