Kweli Journal

Literary fans will want to check out this journal, celebrating great writing across genres. Launched in 2009, "Kweli's mission is to nurture emerging writers of color and create opportunities for their voices to be recognized and valued." Kweli derives its title from the Swahili word for truth, and the journal's work is rooted in truthful storytelling, envisioning "a world where the narratives being told reflect the truth of our histories and the possibilities for our future." Each year, Kweli publishes three online issues. Content from the current issue and the archives can be found on the Home page. Content is also topically organized under the Journal tab. Editor-in-Chief Laura Pegram leads the journal, and the full Masthead is available on the site under the About tab. Kweli receives financial support from the New York State Council on the Arts, the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses, the Amazon Literary Partnership, and the Whiting Foundation, as well as from individual contributors.
