Killens Review of Arts & Letters
Twice a year, the Center publishes the Killens Review of Arts & Letters, a nationally respected, peer-reviewed journal. The publication features short stories, essays, nonfiction, poetry, art, photography, and interviews related to the various experiences lived by writers and artists of the African Diaspora, as well as the African continent. The aim is to provide accomplished and emerging Black creatives with opportunities to expand the canon of literature and art. The latest issue of the Killens Review is available for purchase today.

The Killens Review is named for the late Georgia-born John Oliver Killens. He was a renowned African American novelist and essayist and was a writer-in-residence and professor at Medgar Evers College from 1981 to 1987. Killens was also the founder of the National Black Writers Conference, a major program of the Center.
We are thankful that the Killens Review of Arts & Letters is supported by the Amazon Literary Partnership.
