Call + Response Journal has always been and always will be an art + literary journal tailored for creators of colors. We see the disparities in the publishing world and we are dedicated to closing the gap, volume by volume. Volume II is on the theme of Folklore. We pulled from our main source of inspiration, Anansi the Spider, a West African trickster God whose folktales are told from generation to generation. To us, the value of Folklore lies in the creativity of storytelling. Whether through imagery or words, we wanted to create a space where the imagination could run wild.


Cordella’s second print issue features the work of 58 contributors from around the world, including musicians Lisa O’Neill and Nana Adjoa, artists ruby onyinyechi amanze and Kate Just, makers Amy Yeung of Orenda Tribe and Jenn Fox of Death Valley Nails, and many incredible women-identifying and nonbinary poets, writers, and creatives.

​Volume one did not center around one theme, but evolved from many. Without hard limits on submissions, writers and artists created and the result organically reflected the times of its publication.
