Finally a Black Literary Journal!

Monday, December 13, 2004

Last month I received a nice letter from Jasai Madden, editor of Lorraine and James literary journal and a fan of my Suite 101 Channel African American Women Writers Finding Voice. And I jumped at this opportunity, because we do need more black literary journals and preferably ones not sponsored by Universtity Press. Kudos!

Here's Plug #1, Jasai

Dear Dee,

My name is Jasai Madden and I am the editor of the forthcoming literary journal Lorraine and James. As it seems you have the ear of many wonderful writers via your website, I am wondering if you might be able to post an opportunity that I believe is worthwhile.

In preparation for out spring 2005 debut, we are actively seeking submissions for fiction in the form of the short story, creative non-fiction and essays. This is a paid project.

The goal of Lorraine and James is to give voice and venue to a diverse group of seasoned, upcoming and crowded-out authors of great merit. I would be honored and grateful if you would make the visitors aware of this opportunity, one that I believe will act as a vehicle for great introductions and exposure for some of todays most gifted writers.

If you have any questions I can be contacted at 818-256-4503. You can also visit our temporary home on the web for more details Lorraine and James Literary Journal

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration,

Jasai Madden
