EBSCO, a leading provider of content databases to thousands of university and public libraries around the world, has nominated The New Engagement for inclusion in a new Humanities collection they are currently developing. This means that the literature being produced by our talented writers will be available to a vast new audience of educators, students, and general readers around the world. We'll fill you in on details as they become available.
The New Engagement awards The 2016 James Baldwin Literature Prize of $1000 to Hafsa Musa for their poems, “Wagmu Pejuia,” “Roundhouse Theory,” and “Autumnal Whip.”
Time for a “New Engagement”: A Conversation with magazine founder and editor, Brian Alessandro from The LGBTQ Writers Caucus at AWP
“For those who follow our Facebook page, you might have seen the call for submissions for “The New Engagement,” a new literary & arts journal that pays particular attention to LGBTQ writers, especially those of color. The magazine features the usual works of fiction (including novel excerpts), poetry, and creative non-fiction with an additional nod to photography, illustration, paintings, and film. Additionally, “The New Engagement” has a clear emphasis on art as activism.”
The New Engagement is listed in the esteemed Poets & Writers database of literary journals.
