Be a part of history as The Nubian Chronicles marks its TENTH YEAR online in 2009!

The Nubian Chronicles Magazine [] is currently seeking submissions for its WINTER 2009 issue, slated to be released on Monday, January 19, 2009.  The deadline for submissions is Monday, January 12, 2009.

We seek gripping stories, thought-provoking essays, engaging articles and commentaries by African American writers for our column, NUBIAN belles-lettres.

If interested, please submit the following:

1)  work to be published, no longer than 2,500 words
2)  contact/link information (e-mail, website, myspace, blog)
3)  picture of you (if you would like)
4)  short bio
5)  one- to two-sentence teaser of your work

@ TNC, we know that writers have their own individual literary flows, and for that reason, we do not limit writers as to types of work they can submit to us; however, we do not publish PORN- or HATE-related material. If you wish to submit erotica, that is fine.

Please note that we do not offer monetary payments; however, we do offer exposure, and, starting in 2009, the possibility of having your work nominated by us for the Pushcart Prize [].  Every year, small presses can nominate the best works from their publication for possible inclusion in The Pushcart Prize’s annual Best of the Small Presses series.  So be sure to send us your best works!

Also note that you retain ALL RIGHTS to your work.

Again, the deadline for TNC’s WINTER 2009 issue is MONDAY, JANUARY 12, 2009.
