Founded by mother-daughter duo Lulu and Sofía, Mag 20/20 is an online magazine dedicated to showcasing the brilliant work of creatives in their 20s. We are an ode to the twenties, launching in the year 2020 with a 20-year-old editor-in-chief and the goal of creating a space specifically for creatives in their 20s. In other words, our 20/20 vision (ha!)
Yet you'll notice we are also an ode to the 90s, the decade in which we were born and yet few of us remember. Because being in our twenties is constantly residing in the in-between. We’re not teenagers anymore but most of us still aren’t full adults with careers or mortgage bills. We’re not Millennials and we’re not Gen Z either, and ties to multiple intersectional identities make us wonder even more confused about who we are and where we most belong on one side or another or the other, ad infinitum...
But at Mag 20/20 we embrace that unknowingness, that uncertainty, that beautiful in-between. This is a safe space and welcome community to embrace your creativity in whatever way that means to you through poetry, prose, songs, art, photos, playlists—anything goes!
Your voice is wanted here.
