Tint – The ESL Writers Journal is the first literary journal with an explicit focus on writers who produce creative texts in English as their second or non-native language.
We are looking for original fiction and nonfiction creations by ESL writers including short prose, flash, and poetry. We also invite writers of all backgrounds to contribute interviews with and profiles of ESL writers as well as reviews of their work.
By deliberately choosing English as their creative voice, non-native English writers have the ability to bridge borders and blend cultures without the third party of the translator. Yet, standing behind the uniquely modifying quality of their writing—their tint—is anything but easy. Hence, it is our desire to serve as a platform that illuminates. We want to create a platform to illuminate the capabilities and idiosyncrasies of emerging and established ESL writers.
