The Other About Us Page
Rebirth is often a painful process. But the good thing about it is you get to learn from your mistakes. With that being said, we've learned to specialize in publishing poetry chapbooks and multicultural fiction. It's what we like to read and where we feel the most at home in the act of editing. Also, we've learned that seeking out poets' work in our neighborhood is best. There's less legal hassle and it's easier to set up meetings with the poet in question. Plus, it's easier to set up readings at local establishments.
We've also learned there is some subject matter that wouldn't be prudent to publish, like religion, politics, and erotica. (Check out our manifesto for further details.) We want you to be able to read what you wrote, and what we published, to your kids, your friends, your grandmother, or maybe even your parents. If you can't read your submission to folks like that then we may not be the best place to submit your works. Be innovative. Be brave. Write.
But enough about our vision. Here's the staff so far:

She earned a B.A. in English from Webster University. She was a reader at the Hungry Young Poet Summer Reading Series, sponsored by River Styx Literary Magazine. Natasha is published with Poetry.com, The Ampersand, The Green Fuse, Whistling Shade, and the African American Review.
