It is with great sadness we announce the ending of Linden Avenue Literary Journal. For over eight years, we have taken pride in providing a digital home for writers of all backgrounds and experiences to feel safe and welcome in sharing their work with us. It has been our pleasure to read your work, view your art, and engage with you across many platforms.

Since our inception, we have been proudly led by Black women. Each of us came to the journal with a unique perspective and it is our hope we have made even a small impact on the literary world.

Today, we closed our submissions and will continue to work through our current queue in preparation for our final issue slated for January 2021. Our website will remain active through at least the next calendar year.

It is our hope the essence of Linden Avenue will find its way to new projects in the future, but in the moment we will take our leave.

Thank you for supporting us since 2012. It has meant the world to us.
