From the Publisher

I seek submissions from writers who have a unique vision of the world and have chosen to share it through nonfiction, fiction, and creative nonfiction with thought provoking content that exemplifies the operating principle of the Adinkra word aya: defiance, independence, and resourcefulness.
At this time, I am accepting query letters only! Please do not send completed manuscripts until you have received a response from me.
Peace, Marcia L. McNair
