Blackbird is an online journal of literature and arts that publishes outstanding poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and drama, as well as multi-modal works such as process presentations in the visual arts and video essays. The journal takes advantage of its electronic production to include audio, video, digital photography, and other modes of presentation not possible in print, while continuing to exercise the judgement and careful selection inherited from the traditions of the best print journals. Blackbird is published in partnership by Virginia Commonwealth University’s English Department and New Virginia Review, Inc.
