The Diverse Arts Project (The DAP) is an online literary journal and art/ cultural space. We publish critical and creative reflections on the arts and society, focusing on reflections from diverse perspectives. We view art and creative production as a social process, a function of and contributor to society and politics. As such, part of our goal is to explore the various definitions and exclusions within the world by expanding the number and type of people who are included in artistic and intellectual dialogic and productive spaces. This is our project to diversify the world of ideas.
Submit to The DAP Journal.
The DAP Journal is an online literary journal of creative writing, visual art and music from a diverse range of artists. We publish 2-4 times a year.
We accept previously unpublished films, paintings, photography, fiction, poetry and reviews. We like art that is unique and that highlights the intricacies of cultures often left out of the mainstream art world. We want to be moved and enlightened.
If you would like to submit your work for consideration for publication in The DAP Journal, submit through our Submishmash Account. Here. We consider submissions throughout the year on a rolling basis.
Please note that if your work is accepted, we will acquire first electronic publishing rights. All other rights revert to the artist after publication. Published work will remain in our online archives. We ask that if your work is reprinted, you acknowledge "The Diverse Arts Project" or "The DAP Journal" as the original place of publication. We currently do not offer payment for the work we publish. By submitting to us, you agree to these terms.
Submit an Article/ Non-Fiction Piece
We accept creative, critical and engaging non-fiction or articles. In terms of specific guidelines, we don't really have any. We would like your piece to relate in some way to the arts or cultural phenomena and to be intelligently written. The rest, however, is up to you. Timeliness and newsworthiness are not a concern. Humor is often good, but discretion is even better. Diversity (race, culture, gender, sexual orientation, and the like) of subject matter is what truly interests us. While we intend what we publish to be edifying, we also intend it to be read.
And previously published work is fine—send it along, unless, of course, the original publisher takes issue.
To submit your piece, email us (share [at] thediverseartsproject [dot] com) with your name/ bio and your completed piece pasted (not attached) in the email.
