I'm launching a new online literary magazine, Literally Black, with the sole purpose of showcasing Black authors, poets and artists. This lit mag is edited by a Black writer, will have a panel of Black readers, and only features the work of Black writers and artists. That's important to me because I know there is a ton of written and artistic talent in the Black community, but folks don't often get to see it. The first issue goes live on February 1, 2011, and submissions will be taken from now through January 20, 2011. You can go to the official website, literallyblack.com , to see the guidelines and submit. Submission is free, and the magazine will be free for everyone to read online. Literally Black will be published once per month. I'm looking for poetry, fictional short stories, creative non-fiction, essays, interviews and book reviews. If you have any questions, my contact info is on the website!
