What Are We?

NOT DEER MAGAZINE'S GOAL

Constructed in 2021 by Editor-in-Chief Rowan Bagley, Not Deer Magazine was envisioned as an arts magazine by and for marginalized creators specializing in horror. Longtime readers and writers of the scary and surreal, we saw the need for more platforms within the horror community that elevate marginalized voices.
