CURA Magazine and the Literature of Black Lives Matter

CURA: A Literature Magazine of Art and Action is currently accepting submissions for their 2015-2016 issue dedicated to the Black Lives Matter movement and the voices, art, and action of racial justice.

CURA is open to poetry submissions and prose submissions at a maximum of 6,000 words. Their reading period closes on March 15. Further details can be found here, and submissions can be sent here.

From CURA:

“We seek to promote a movement of creative response guided by meaningful action– to celebrate active citizenship where a republic of writers, filmmakers, visual and digital artists converge. What Martín Espada has written about the social responsibility of the “Republic of Poetry” we believe applies to a Republic of all the Arts. It is “a place where creativity meets community, where the imagination serves humanity. [It] is a republic of justice because the practice of justice is the highest form of human expression.”
