Following in the footsteps of one of my friend Kimolisa Mings – whose poetry has also been accepted into the Journal – I am letting my readership know about this wonderful online resource for exposing mostly Caribbean talent. Many of my friends have been accepted as well, for art, poetry and short stories (Hail up to Cher Corbin, Tammi-Browne Bannister, Graham Bannister, Tracy Greenidge and all the other illustrious writers and artists)
Here’s some info about St. Somewhere Journal.
St. Somewhere Journal is an online literary journal with a focus on the broader Caribbean Basin region. Our primary mission is to present works from, about or inspired by this geographic region, its peoples and cultures. Secondary emphasis will be placed on works of an international nature, or with more general appeal.
There are many online literary journals and magazines, but St. Somewhere Journal hopes to help fill an under served niche in the writing market. Literature from the Caribbean region has relatively few viable outlets, despite its rich history and large potential audience. Of those outlets, many are not readily accessible to a broad audience. Despite the vast array of online literary outlets, those with a Caribbean focus are in even shorter supply online than in the print world.
Additionally, St. Somewhere Journal wishes to foster a sense of accessibility that is sometimes lacking in more formal or academic publications. We seek to feature the work of both emerging and established writers, regardless of credentials or previous credits. Well-written and well-crafted works are our concern, but we believe that literary art should not be confined to academia.
So – be entertained by the wonderful talent in this journal HERE, and do not hesitate to leave comments and let the artists know you appreciate their work!
