Kya Publishing's "Black Writers' Survey" was designed to capture and share some of the current thoughts and realities for Black writers.
In 2013 we first posed the question "What is Canadian Urban Fiction?" (see video below) and for five years we opened the discussion for guest writers to explore the genre through our research publication, the Journal of Canadian Urban Fiction (JCUF). The Journal of Canadian Urban Fiction highlighted research in the genre of urban fiction and examined cultural and literary works through articles, reflections, and book reviews. Our Journal set out to define Canadian Urban Fiction and the culture that inspires it, feature contributions from Canadian and international writers, and provide a venue for discussion, debate, and critical analysis of issues surrounding the potential development of Canadian Urban Fiction.
