Started in 2002, the online journal Blackbird brings many literary and artistic traditions together in a format that is both appropriate for the digital age, and one that will delight those interested in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. The journal is a joint venture between the department of English at Virginia Commonwealth University and the New Virginia Review. Published twice a year, the journal takes a breezy journey through the arts with interviews with Rodney Jones and Lorraine Adams and short pieces by such up-and-comers as Misty Urban and Kathy Flann. The poetry section is quite well-developed, and highlights here include Jennifer Chang’s “Estuary” and Terri Witek’s “Right Over Left”. Overall, Blackbird is a very pleasant find and a model that might serve as an inspiration for other groups seeking to start their own online humanities journal.
