The Quail Bell Scholarship for Creative Promise
Thank you for your patience as we've worked to get The Children of Jackson Ward, our new poetry and photography book about Richmond's black, working-class downtown neighborhoods, off the ground. Christine Stoddard wrote the poems following her year as an AmeriCorps volunteer at G.W. Carver Elementary School, and Kristen Rebelo later took photographs on the streets of Carver, Newtowne West, Jackson Ward, and Gilpin Court to complement the poetry. The Children of Jackson Ward now has a webpage right here on Quail Bell Magazine and is also available as an ebook. Your purchase will help fund the Quail Bell Scholarship for Creative Promise! Check out the new webpage, which also includes The Poet Time's video of Pushcart nominee Jessica Reidy performing one of the collection's poems, "Everyday Seeing."
Welcome to our staff blog, where you can learn more about The Quail Bell Crew.
Christine Stoddard conceived the idea for Quail Bell in late 2009 after writing a children's story by the same name, and launched the website as a college blog in 2010. In June 2013, Christine and former art director Kristen Rebelo officially launched Quail Bell Magazine as a global web magazine. Read our editorial mission statement to learn more.
