Editorial Focus

CKP seeks materials from the broadest range of writers, including people of color and people with disabilities. We are partial to the writer whose distinct voice is emotionally accessible and daring. We discourage victim-ridden, pedagogic, politically preachy or sentimental material. CKP does not publish self-help, how-to, romance or sci-fi. For more info, see
