The Michigan Quarterly Review has a special issue entitled "Why We Write" that we believe might be of interest to Motown writers network. The issue is guest edited by Mark Nowak and it will be focused on community based writing, craft writing, and writing to bring about social change and political transformation.
We are particularly keen to feature diverse Michigan voices in the issue, and the voices of writers engaged in community-based writing practices. The full call for submissions can be found here: https://sites.lsa.umich.edu/mqr/submit/
Submissions for the issue close at the end of the month and we really hope you will consider sharing the opportunity with writers in your community.
