About Call + Response Journal

Launched in August 2018, Call + Response Journal has published diverse poetry, art, short stories, interviews and recently expanded towards think pieces, gallery and exhibit reviews, and essays that all pertain to exploring and engaging with creatives of color from all over the world on our online platform.

Created by womanist writer Veronica Elizabeth Thomas and inspired by the West African trickster, Anansi the Spider, god of wisdom, storytelling, and creativity, we wanted to create a place where creatives of color could confidently submit their work to a journal crafted just for them.

Call + Response is a student-run literary and arts journal providing a creative hub for new and emerging artists of color. We aim to introduce fresh and creative voices to the world through diverse and original art, poetry, fiction, essays, and reviews.
