The idea for this publication came out of the Grubstreet Writers of Color gathering at the MUSE conference earlier this year. Reviews can be vital to the promotion, publication, and sales for an author therefore it is the mission of 2040 Review to provide an avenue of accessibility for authors of color within the world of literature reviews.
The title for this publication was inspired by author David Mura who while presenting at the MUSE conference pointed out that the demographics of the publishing industry will shift due to the fact that by 2040 people of color will be the majority in this country. 2040 Review will provide advocacy for writers of color, offering the opportunity for our work to be reviewed by our peers within our own communities.
We plan to present our website early next year and will officially launch at the MUSE conference in April 2018. Your support will assist in the following:
- Website launch and maintenance
- Quarterly print publications
- Payment for the reviewers
- No submission fees for authors
- 2040 Review sustainability
Thank you in advance for helping us bring this vision to life and for being a part of the journey titled 2040 Review.
