Submissions are open to all POC (Persons of Color) ONLY. 

WusGood.black
 seeks to ask/answer questions within urban conversations.

WusGood.black seeks to show & tell experiences seen as Ghetto or Hood in the mainstream, but are everyday encounters for the artists.

WusGood.black seeks artists who aren’t visible in the mainstream, urban artists, & artists who desire to find a home that refuse to entertain cultural or artistic appropriation.

WusGood.black aims to be a space welcoming to conversations among POC and for all POC to be showcased. 


We encourage you to read work from a variety of WusGood Issues to get a sense of what we want to publish. 

Using the "General Submissions" option, artists can submit Poetry, Prose, Lists, Essays, Videos, Audio, and Requests to have merchandise showcased.
