About Roundtable Journal

Roundtable is a biannual print journal & blog exploring self, art, politics, womanism and more, all told through an intelligent, authentic voice. Featuring candid conversations with amazing women, compelling articles on contemporary society, humorous anecdotes and bold photography, Roundtable Journal is a reflective, thought-provoking read.

Roundtable was started in 2017 by a group of young women who decided to create the sort of publication they wanted to read. 

Each issue is 200 pages dedicated to representation, starting conversations and portraying women authentically.

SARAH Adler, Online Content Editor / Staff Writer Sarah is currently pursuing a B.A. in English and creative writing at UC Berkeley. Although she's an infamous control freak when it comes to picking movies, she’s always up to try some new food (even though she prefers Mexican). If you want to discuss Bon Iver, literary theory or vinyasa yoga, she's your girl. @sadgirll123

ROSE Eaglesfield, Editorial Intern Rose’s favourite pastime is interrupting and correcting mansplainers. She manages to stay organised with the help of beautiful overpriced stationary. She's currently studying for a B.A. History of Art & Dutch but she’s determined to move to Europe before Brexit happens. @roze______

ISABEL Webb, Features Editor Walking the sartorial line between ironic and insane, Bella is probably drinking from a ‘Fizz Khalifa’ cup and preaching Betty Friedan right now. Writing for the sake of sanity, she's trying to stay afloat in the Big Smoke. @bellalouisew
