New Lit on the Block:: Mythium
Mythium: The Journal of Contemporary Literature and Culture is the “brainchild of award-winning author and educator, Crystal E. Wilkinson and visual artist/graphic designer, upfromsumdirt (ronald davis).” The subtitle of the magazine goes into greater depth as to its mission: “Celebrating Writers of Color and the Cultural Voice.” According to Davis, “our goal is to provide an outlet for those ethnic writers not immediately focused upon through other journals.”
