New to The Redwing’s Nest?

The Redwing’s Nest is a community partnership between Sabot at Stony Point, New Virginia Revue and Blackbird: an online  journal of literature and the arts. The website build and Alpha issue were made possible by the Culture Works Grants Program in Richmond, Virginia.

The Redwing’s Nest is an online journal of literary and visual arts for children pre-school through 8th grade.  The journal provides a place for children to publish and exhibit their work. The goal of the journal is to give children a venue for their creative voices to be heard, as well as building a community of young artists and writers. The journal’s reach is global and inclusive, accepting submissions  from children pre-school through 8th grade from public, independent  and homeschool learning communities.

The journal is online only and published three times a year.  Each issue has a  broad theme that addresses archetypal images of childhood that are prominent in the artistic landscape of young artists and writers.  Each themed issue will feature a gallery of artists works, poetry, fiction, non-fiction including memoirs, as well as book reviews that broadly connect to the given theme.

The Spring 2011 Alpha  issue was themed PLACE.

The Fall 2011 Beta issue is themed MUSIC and SOUND.

The Winter 2012 issue is themed ME, MYSELF AND I.

The Spring 2012 issue is themed HOME.


A joint venture of Sabot at Stony Point, Blackbird and New Virginia Review, Inc.
