New Lit on the Block :: The Redwing’s Nest

The Redwing’s Nest is a community partnership between Sabot at Stony Point, New Virginia Revue and Blackbird: an online journal of literature and the arts.

The Redwing’s Nest is an online journal of literary and visual arts for children pre-school through 8th grade. The journal provides a place for children to publish and exhibit their work. The goal of the journal is to give children a venue for their creative voices to be heard, as well as building a community of young artists and writers. The journal’s reach is global and inclusive, accepting submissions from children pre-school through 8th grade from public, independent and homeschool learning communities.

The journal is online only and published quarterly. Each issue has a broad theme that addresses archetypal images of childhood that are prominent in the artistic landscape of young artists and writers. Each themed issue will feature a gallery of artists works, poetry, fiction, non-fiction including memoirs, as well as book reviews that broadly connect to the given theme.

This Alpha issue is themed PLACE. The Spring Beta issue is themed MUSIC and SOUND. The Fall 2011 issue is themed ME. Subsequent themes will be announced in the Beta issue.
