joINT. Literary Magazine seeks to elevate work from the margins of Afro-diasporic experience including, but not limited to: those perspectives that engage the complexities of ability, gender identity & sex, race, class, and religion, among others. We are particularly interested in work from emerging writers and the work of Black women, women-centered BW, and woman-identified persons of African descent.
We're currently seeking work in the following categories for publication in fall/winter 2017: POETRY, SPOKEN WORD, and ESSAY.
Guidelines for each category are as follows:
Poetry: 3-5 poems, .doc/.docx files, only.
Essay/Fiction: 5000 words, max., .doc/.docx files, only.
Flash fiction: 1000 words max., .doc/.docx files, only.
Visual Art: 3 JPEG files, max.

Selected work will be compensated. We pay via PayPal and Square.
