Many thanks to editors Sonya Chung and Helen Dano for publishing â€œAbout B-Boys in the Boogie Downâ€ and â€œIn the City, you canâ€™t help but think of Godâ€ in the inaugural edition of CrossBRONX.
New York Peeps: Tonight’s First Wednesdays Bronx Culture Trolley will be featuring readings of selected works by some of the first issueâ€™s contributing writers. If you check it out, please let me know.
Welcome to the inaugural issue of CrossBRONX, compiled and edited by the Bronx Writers Centerâ€™s 2008 Fellows Sonya Chung and Helen Dano. The task to create a new digital journal was an extraordinary accomplishment. But just as extraordinary are the poets, writers, and artists selected for the premiere edition. Each reflects the diversity of the Bronx as well as its future. The talent that comprises CrossBRONX is only a sample of what will be presented in future issues.
Thereâ€™s a dramatic change in the Bronx -new artists, poets, critical thinkers, and cultural visionaries sharing their insights, hopes, and creative talents. Iâ€™m sure that this venture will continue the boroughâ€™s growth as an incubator for the new creative frontier.
CrossBRONX will be published three times a year, giving a variety of writers and visual artists the opportunity to share their work in a new media form.
