Writers Of Color

We read a lot of literary journals here at Writer’s Relief, since we’re always researching literary markets for our clients’ creative writing. And we’re regularly impressed by the literary journals that feature authors of color from all walks of life.

That’s why we’ve put together this very special edition of our Lit Mag Love Contest—to increase awareness and support for literary journals dedicated to publishing the poetry and short prose of writers of color.

Help us spread the word about these wonderful literary journals!

The winner(s) of our Lit Mag Diversity Spotlight Contest will receive great prizes donated by these participating literary journals!

WIN THIS!
