“A journal named for ‘truth’ in Swahili invites its readers and contributors to seek for the same.” Nelly Rosario
Several journals exist in the virtual marketplace. But few fully embrace the new voices and visions of writers of color. Fewer still offer a permanent home for our short stories, poetry and essays. Kweli Journal hopes to change that paradigm.
Our premiere issue featured the poetry of Patricia Spears Jones, the prose of Nelly Rosario and a photo essay by Thomas Sayers Ellis.
We are now calling for submissions to our Fall/Winter 2011 issue.
It will feature the prose of Jennine Capó Crucet (PEN/O. Henry Prize winner for How to Leave Hialeah) and the poetry of Amaud Johnson(winner of Dorset Prize for Red Summer).

Our next reading period: July 16, 2011 to September 16, 2011
