I recently learned about a new online magazine that will feature the work of women of color artists/writers. I got the info for you all so you can check it out and submit something if you'd like. (The following is a combination of what's on the website, and her email to me.)
Sepia Magazine is interested in poetry, short stories, haiku, current events blog posts, and monologues. Topic choice is completely up to you. Send in a single piece that you think represents you best or send in a few and let the editor-in-chief be the judge!
Please include your display name, a short bio (editable at their discretion) and a link to a personal website or blog that will be included with your submission.
Please feel free to email your submission with SEPIA SUBMISSION as the subject.

OK - Here is a question. Am I a woman of color if I look Caucasian but I am Hispanic?
I am absolutely serious.
I've always thought people of color are by definition not white. But ... are they?

Yes, you are a woman of color. A person of color is generally anybody who is not white, even if they look white. I think in general it's said so that it includes more than just blacks since people usually think of race in terms of black and white, completely ignoring Latinos, Asians, Native Americans, etc.
