Thanks to our lead partner, TAYO Literary Magazine
TAYO cultivates emerging poetry and prose, publishing writing that knifes, lifts, and strikes at the emotive truth of all things lost and adrift. TAYO accepts work without regard to ethnicity or nationality* (all are welcomed to submit), and they look for pieces that slice into the phantasmagoria of the oppressed, marginalized, post-colonized, and diasporic life. TAYO is an annual print, quarterly online and multimedia platform for storytelling. They produce an annual publication, TAYO Literary Magazine, as well as a quarterly online Special Issue Series. They strive to build kapwa (shared humanity) through readings, community projects, and cultural events. Tayo na!
