Call for submissions: Kweli Journal
“Finally a smart and well curated literary space for writers of color
that encourages experimentation. A place to commune. A place to read
new contemporary voices that deserve our attention. Bravo!” Angie
Cruz, author of Soledad and Let It Rain Coffee, a finalist for the
Impac Dublin Award in 2007.
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 2011 issue.
Add your voice. Share your visions. Join Jennine Capó Crucet, Camille
