Call for submissions: Kweli

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!

Kweli has featured the prose of Jeffery Renard Allen, Angie Cruz, Victor LaValle and Nelly Rosario, . . . the poetry of Santee Frazier, Lorna Goodison and John Murillo, . . . and photo essays by Thomas Sayers Ellis, Rachel Eliza Griffiths and Emily Raboteau.

Upcoming issues will feature Jennine Capo Crucet, Camille Dungy, Amaud Johnson and Aaron Michael Morales.

Sep 16 reading at Elliott Bay Books: Arlene Kim and Anne Overstreet

From Arlene:

You—yes, you!—are invited to my book launch at Elliott Bay Books (1521 10th Ave, Seattle—in Cap Hill) on Sep 16, Fri, 7:00pm. I'll be reading from my new collection of poems, What have you done to our ears to make us hear echoes?, along with friend/fellow poet Anne Overstreet, who also has a book of poetry just out, Delicate Machinery Suspended. (Psst: secret little handmade goodies for anyone who buys a book at the reading.)
