Submission Guidelines:

*Accepting essays, reviews, stories and other creative writing, poetry, visual art, music, videos (preferably uploaded to a video distributor website), fashion photos (clothing, jewelry, etc.) and other creative items exploring intersections between African Diasporic cultures and speculative fiction, science, technology, mythology, and spirituality/spiritual systems, or looking through the lens of afrofuturism, afrosurrealism, and the ethnogothic.

*I am also interested in the same submissions above representing cultures of other people of color.

*Any submitter will retain all the rights to their work. Their work can be previously published and you are allowed to publish elsewhere.

*I am the editor of this blog and I will edit works only for grammar, spelling, and structure, and since I am doing this alone, it may take me a while to respond with feedback, so be patient.

*If interested in being a co-moderator, helping run the other social media platforms, or regular guest writer, contact me with your information, a short biography with credentials, and why and what are you are interested in contributing. It will not be a paying job (maybe in the future).

*Also, accepting review requests for books, music, film, events, and artwork.

*Accepting suggestions for project ideas that you may be interested in working with me to produce.

*You can support the blog by donating at the side panel, too.

Thank you for coming to my blog!
