2040 Review is the first review publication that will feature reviewers and authors of color. We recognize that reviews can be vital to the promotion, publication, and sales for an author. It is our mission to provide an avenue of accessibility for authors of color within the world of literature reviews.
The idea for 2040 Review came out of the Grubstreet Writers of Color gathering at the MUSE conference in Boston in 2017. The title, 2040 Review, was inspired by author David Mura who pointed out that by 2040 people of color will be the majority in this country. The launch of 2040 Review is an effort to provide advocacy for writers of color, offering the opportunity for our work to be reviewed by peers within our own communities.
