About the Killens Review of Arts & Letters
The Killens Review of Arts & Letters (Killens Review) is published up to twice a year by the Center for Black Literature at Medgar Evers College, CUNY. The publication is a peer-reviewed journal that seeks book reviews, essays, short stories, creative nonfiction, poetry, visual art, photographs, letters, and interviews related to the various cultural, sociopolitical, and historical experiences of writers and artists from the African Diaspora. The aim is to provide well-known and lesser-known authors as well as educators and students opportunities to create and expand the canon of literature produced by people of color. We welcome the works of poets, novelists, short story writers, playwrights, journalists, essayists, scholars, and yet-to-be-discovered writers of the African Diaspora.
While the Killens Review welcomes unsolicited material, we prefer to publish original material, i.e. first-ever publications. Unless otherwise selected by the editors, we cannot run a piece that has previously appeared elsewhere in print or on the web. Prospective contributors are asked to submit work that is aligned with the current theme (which are announced in advance).
Submission categories include essay, fiction, interview, poetry, prose, and art. We aim to respond to your submission within two months.
Please note: material in this publication may not be reproduced in whole or in part without permission. Opinions expressed by contributors do not necessarily reflect the views of the Center for Black Literature at Medgar Evers College, CUNY. The Killens Review of Arts & Letters cannot be held responsible for unsolicited manuscripts, photographs, or artwork.
