Fordham University's national literary magazine, CURA: A Literary Magazine of Art and Action is accepting 2013 - 2014 submissions through March. Featuring creative writing, visual art, new media and video, our aim is to integrate literary art publishing with social justice.

We are proud to be continuing our partnership with The Doe Fund. Through its pioneering program, Ready Willing and Able, The Doe Fund combines paid transitional work and a holistic, individualized service package to catapult individuals into the workforce and out of cycles of homelessness, crime, and addiction. All magazine publication proceeds directly benefit The Doe Fund.
To announce the call for submissions, CURA is running a "Literary Crushes" project. CURA staffers gave out strawberry Crush sodas at Fordham University, Rose Hill in return for expressions of lit-love. Add to the love-fest on our Tumblr.
