Hello! And Welcome to Lit! A home for new and experienced writers.
Frustrated with the lack of platforms to showcase BAME writer’s work, we decided to create a free online magazine. What are we looking for? Writing that moves us. Good writing evokes an emotional response. Whether laughter, sorrow, shock or empathy – we want to be moved. As a lover of literature, I am looking for work where I am impressed by the writers’ craft. Writers who wield language like a weapon of old!
Whether is sophisticated sentence structures that reflect the complexity of a situation or the use of simple language to make a point. It’s up to you how you display your craft in your work of art.
In particular we are interested in voices usually under represented but welcome all. Like most authors, I love reading a good story. Being a member of the UK Literary Association puts me directly in the path of brilliantly written books that I read for the yearly book competition they hold. I notice how under represented some members of our community are. I want to hear the kaleidoscopic voices of all, not just some.
This magazine will be updated quarterly. When we are open for submissions, do check our guidelines and send us your work. Click here to view Issue One
