About Camellias

Camellias Publishing is a Southern regional magazine based out of Birmingham, AL.


Our goal is to create a portrait of the Southern woman in a 21st-century setting. We want our publication to not only recognize the unsavory history of the Southern identity, but also create room for conversations about race, social justice, and asserting your identity in the face of cultural prejudice. We hope to accomplish this all while still providing you with your favorite butter-filled recipes and funny home-grown stories y'all know and love.

Rooted in Alabama, the legacy of Harper Lee and the Camellias
