Worms magazine is a literary style magazine that celebrates female and non-binary writer culture. Published bi-annually, Worms Magazine seeks to bring together the established and the emerging, the underground and the canonical, the lofty and the profane. Inspired by underground literary movements and the DIY Zine culture that shaped them, we cover topics that range from style, art, philosophy, theory, gender, politics/capitalism, contemporary culture, and social commentary. Although based in London, the writers, poets, artists and illustrators that populate these pages are spread out across the globe.
Worms #4 The Flaneuse reconsiders psychogeography and the Situationists from a non-male perspective, taking flâneuserie and the creative benefits of a good walk as its starting point. 2021 was a fraught year for walking; the pandemic restricted our right to movement, while the murders of women walking in London led us to ask the question: how can the act of walking the streets spark political conversation?
This issue features conversations with Eileen Myles, Alison Bechdel, Lauren Elkin, Tilly Lawless, Mckenzie Wark, Therese Estacion and Carmen Winant.
