Welcome to One Twenty-One, a national journal of art and literature.

We, the staff of One Twenty-One, created this journal with the goal of centering and uplifting the voices of undergraduate writers and artists at historically black colleges and universities across the country.

We want to influence people to use their imaginations.

We want to get people who think reading and writing is boring to think again.

We want to cross borders other journals wouldn’t dream of crossing.

We want to publish all genres, including new genres or work that bends or blends genres.

We want to expand the scope of a literary journal to include multi-modal art, combining text, audio, and visuals to create something entirely new.

At One Twenty-One, our mission is to make a statement by bringing your creativity to light.

We launched the website in March 2021, and we hope to begin publishing quality student writing, artwork and performance to the web as soon as April 2021. So head over to the Submissions tab to learn how you can send us your very best work, knowing that the student editors of One Twenty-One can't wait to bring your creativity to light.
