Cordella Press

Dunsmuir, CA

Cordella Magazine is a biannual online magazine with an annual print edition, featuring the work of women-identified and nonbinary creatives, published by Cordella Press. We also create chapbooks and letterpress poetry broadsides. 

Cordella Press seeks to record and share the creative voices of women-identified and nonbinary people from all walks of life, exploring the ways that our spirit and sense of self is engaged with our physical place and daily experiences. Our purpose is to encourage one another to know ourselves more deeply, to value the stories we have to tell, and to connect with a sense of feminine wisdom and community that has nourished women throughout history.

We honor the diversity of spirituality, and recognize that the edification of one's spiritual life brings healing to our earth, to our families and communities, and to ourselves. We center marginalized voices and prioritize the work of BIPOC creatives. We seek to create a safe and welcoming space for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse. We reserve the right to remove any work from Cordella Magazine if it comes to our attention that the author is an abuser.

Cordella Press is based in rural Dunsmuir, California, on unceded Okwanuchu and Winnemum Wintu land. This initiative was named after our founder’s grandmother, and long-time Dunsmuir local, Bobbie Cordella Fletcher. Though she has faced many hardships throughout her life, she has continually offered kindness, laughter, and open-hearted hospitality to everyone she meets. In her honor, we humbly dedicate this initiative.
