Fordham University’s national literary magazine, CURA: A Literary Magazine of Art and Action is now accepting submissions. Featuring creative writing, visual art, new media and video, their aim is to seek to integrate literary art publishing with social justice. CURA contributors have won Rockefeller, Guggenheim, American Book, and National Endowment for the Arts awards. Past issues have featured work by: Brenda Hillman, Robert Bly, Evie Shockley, Patricia Smith and Idra Novey. They would love to see submissions from the visual arts community at New School–Parsons School of Design. CURA can be found here.
CURA seeks to promote a movement of creative response guided by meaningful action–to celebrate active citizenship where a republic of writers, filmmakers, visual and digital artists converge. What Martín Espada has written about the social responsibility of the “Republic of Poetry” we believe applies to a Republic of all the Arts. It is “a place where creativity meets community, where the imagination serves humanity. [It] is a republic of justice because the practice of justice is the highest form of human expression.”
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons School of Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
