March 18, 2020 0 By The Writers Pen

Here are opportunities for those who are want to submit poetry, prose or other art for March 2020.

  1. Kweli Journal.

Launched in December 2009, Kweli is an online journal that celebrates community and cultural kinships. In this shared space, you will hear the lived experience of people of colour. Their many stories. Their shared histories. Their creative play with language. Their memories are wrapped inside the music of the Muscogee, the blues songs of the South, the clipped patois of the Caribbean. There is a special call for Kweli’s April/May 2020 Issue guest edited by Nicole Dennis-Benn.

Deadline: March 14.
Details: Submission page.

  1. Down River Road Literary Journal.

From Down River Road: ISSUE 2. RITUAL. In thinking about this, our second issue, we retreat to the processes of daily humanizations, from taking a morning shit to ancestral veneration to daily commute to un/dressing and beyond: Ritual. Ritual, viz., the ways in which we be, the ways in which we are, the ways in which we play and work and rest and create, the ways in which we gather, the ways in which we seek and do solitude. With series editor Neo Sinoxolo Musangi and Carey Baraka and Wairimu Muriithi as editors.

Deadline: March 31, 2020
Details: Click here.

  1. Bakwa 10

What constitutes a family has changed over time, not just in composition but also in definition. In our changing world, gender roles in the family have also been questioned. The breadwinner of the family is no longer a tag meant for men only. How do all these fit into our understanding of the family? Is blood really thicker than water? What does family mean? How do we relate to it? How does it make or unmake us? Is it defined exclusively by blood ties? How often does it fuck us up? How often does it protect us? We are interested in nonfiction and fiction that answer these questions or ask different questions entirely.

Deadline: April 1, 2020.
