joINT seeks to create a space in which to re-interpret what it means to be of African descent when one does not “fit” into the illusory monolith of Black political identity.
joINT seeks work from writers and visual artists across the African diaspora, who exist within the margins of gender, sex, religious, cis, able-bodied, and class privilege, to name a few.
A black and white cultural publication for writers of color to showcase their work in any genre. It provides readers with an opportunity to read new work by internationally renowned and new writers within a format and design that is aesthetically as important as the written word.
