Welcome to Cordella Magazine
we are a quarterly online magazine, sharing the work of cis women*, trans women, and nonbinary artists, writers, and creatives.
Cordella seeks to record and share the creative voices of cis women*, trans women, 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.
We honor the diversity of spirituality, and recognize that the edification of a one's spiritual life brings healing to our earth, to our families and communities, and to ourselves.
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.
* cis women are women whose gender identity and presentation fit traditional norms.
Cordella was founded by three friends living in three different states… Cate in Pennsylvania, Sarah in California, and Melanie in Oregon. As we felt our way into adulthood, and particularly as we became mothers of daughters, we perceived a lack of understanding and models for what it means to be a woman.
Cordella Magazine was named after Cate's grandmother, Bobbie Cordella Fletcher. She has been one of Cate's greatest sources of love and strength. 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.
