The publication is an online literary magazine featuring Black women writers and artists. On BLACKBERRY’S website it states:
“Its goal is to expose readers to the diversity of the black woman’s experience and strengthen the black female voice in both the mainstream and independent markets. We hope to illuminate the exceptional work of a newer generation while reaching back to those whose words may have been ignored in the past.
We have published talented up-and-coming artists as well as prize-winning fellows such as Stephania Byrd, Leesa Cross-Smith, Brenda Bell Brown, Tara Betts, Esme-Michelle Watkins, and Cynthia Manick.”
