Of all the featured Pittsburgh magazines and literary enclaves, I was drawn to Sampsonia Way. It is the online magazine sponsored by the City of Asylum and showcases literature about social justice and freedom of speech. It is a home for exiled writers. I realize that I am privileged to have been born a U.S citizen. Thus, my work and I wouldn’t be targeted if I spoke of controversial topics. I feel that Sampsonia Way is a perfect fit for my work because I always make it a point to mention and expose the realities of being a queer Afro-Latina in the contemporary USA. Sampsonia Way is a safe haven for writers and I find it a perfect opportunity to learn and be a close-knit community.
A perk: internship opportunities are available for college credit!
