joINT. Literary Magazine is brand new and seeking work from writers across the African diaspora, encouraging writers who exist within the margins of gender/sex, race, religious, able-bodied and class privilege to submit. What this looks like, of course, is dependent upon the collection of voices that come together and submit to the debut of the magazine.
We are now accepting previously unpublished submissions of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and visual art for our inaugural issue, to be released in March 2014. The submission deadline for this issue is January 15, 2014.For extensive submission guidelines, please visit: http://jointliterarymag.wordpress.com/
It’s amazing to me how many “ear to the ground” folks I know have spent so ugh time posting about Beyoncé but still aren’t spreading awareness about #kendrickjohnson . This 17 year old #blackboy was killed on school grounds in #Valdosta Georgia and everyone from the school to the cops to the coroner to the funeral home to the media is complicit in the #coverup . #CNN has been the only news outlet that has followed the story and tried to get the family some answers. HELLO PEOPLE this #blackbody is symbolic of how we as #blackpeople are still seen. THEY FILLED HIS BODY WITH NEWSPAPER! Look at his face! They tried to say he only suffocated?! How when he looks like #emmettill ?! If you can post about how wonderful Beyoncé is or anything else THEN SURELY you can share this story and spread awareness. The coverup is only working because people aren’t informed. The more people know, the more pressure can be put on the town. The US Attorney and FBI are involved but it’s not enough. Where are his rallies? His songs? His poems? Why is his image not being shared across the country? Across the world? Where is the #outrage
Oh my God. Bless his soul
