Simultaneous to the ongoing open call, from January 22 to February 20, 2024 submissions are being accepted for a special section, Celebrating Black History. Selection of works for that section will be made by editors Rebecca Bishophall, Khadijah Z. Ali-Coleman, and Carolivia Herron. If submitting for that special section, please note that in your submission. There is a space in the online submission form to do so.
