Issue One Call for Submissions

We launched CRWN in August of 2015. We're off to a running start and are well on our way to getting our first issue to press. We are immersed in creating content, but more importantly we are creating a team. With that in mind we are accepting open submissions for a limited time. If you see the world the way that we do, submit your best work, and help us raise the aesthetic for Black women.


Our first issue is set to hit shelves March 1st — Just as Winter winds down and we step into Spring. For this issue we are exploring the idea of rebirth, redefinition, change, and growth. Visuals that speak to transformation and growth, and writing that explores all of the nuances of a woman — becoming. 


Lifestyle: Fashion, Family, Travel, Health & Fitness, Nutrition, Entertainment
Thought: The real issues that impact Black women.
Hairstyle Inspiration
Technique: Hair care and styling
People: Creatives, stylists, entrepreneurs, elders, blogger/vlogger
