Call For Submissions: Kweli Journal (Voices of Color)

01 February 2010
Call For Submissions: Kweli Journal (Voices of Color)
Details:
Several journals exist in the virtual marketplace. But few fully embrace the new voices and visions of writers of color. Fewer still offer a permanent home for our short stories, poetry and essays. Kweli Journal hopes to change that paradigm. Our premiere issue featured the poetry of Patricia Spears Jones, the prose of Nelly Rosario and a photo essay by Thomas Sayers Ellis.

We are now calling for submissions to our Spring/Summer 2010 issue. The theme is "silences." Add your voice. Share your visions. Join us.

Please provide the following:

A cover letter telling us something about yourself. Please include current contact information (full name, mailing address, telephone number(s), e-mail address) and title(s) of submitted work.

Two printed copies of your unpublished work(s).

Fiction: We primarily look for short stories, but novel excerpts are acceptable if self-contained. Prose should be double-spaced on one side.

Nonfiction: We primarily look for personal essays, but memoir excerpts are acceptable if self-contained. Prose should be double-spaced on one side.

Poetry: Send up to three poems at a time. Single-space, please; set your poem as you want it to appear on the printed page.

Mail in a page-size manila envelope on or before the submission deadline date. Kweli will not consider material postmarked after the submission deadline date. A self-addressed, stamped mailing envelope if you want your work returned to you. Kweli will not return any submitted work without this SASE. If work is accepted for publication, you must provide an electronic copy of the selected work as a Word document.

Spring/Summer 2010 Submission Deadline: March 15, 2010
