BMa: The Sonia Sanchez Literary Review invites submissions on any aspect of
poet Sonia Sanchez's work.

As a poet who emerged during the height of the Black Arts Movement, Sonia
Sanchez produced powerful poetry for nearly three decades.

Published twice yearly, BMa maintains a rolling enrollment. However, among the
issues we'd like to address in 2001 &2002 are:

                Quest themes in Sanchez's work

                Pedagogical issues involved in teaching Sanchez's work

                And close studies of her poetic style.

The Wisconsin Review of African Literatures

Voices is a forum for exploring issues of written and oral artistic
production in Africa and the Diaspora in relation to the continent.
Submissions that stretch and challenge such disciplinary boundaries are
welcome and will be considered for publication. We will distribute copies
of Voices to American universities with interest in African studies, and to
African institutions which may have more difficulty in
maintaining/developing their collections of research in African literature.
We invite submissions from writers world-wide. Voices is complemented by a
web site with the aim of cultivating a broad readership and interactive
academic network.
