#blacklivesmatter: Rethinking Children's & YA Lit magazine submissions
Tuesday, 20 September 2016 10:00 AM
Rethinking Children’s and Young Adult Literature: Read for Change
Fall 2016 Volume 3, Issue 4
Edited by Assistant Professor in the Department of English at Ball State University, Dr. Darolyn “Lyn” Jones with George and Frances Ball Distinguished Professor of Multimedia, Jennifer Palilonis, Ball State University iMedia, teacher education, and creative writing Ball State students.
In this innovative free, digital, interactive literary magazine, we have married stories, art, activism and multi modal delivery for your readers to experience the inclusiveness of stories that focus on topics promoting social and educational justice.
Diversity in children’s literature is critical in constructing culture and community identity. We grow up and are conditioned by the stories we read as children and retell as adults. This gatekeeping that happens at home, in schools, and in communities often prevents new stories, different stories, rewritten stories from being consumed, read, and valued as quality literature.
