Sameness in literature should not be limited to The Giver or to children’s literature, especially when there is a larger literary conversation that calls for the inclusion of stronger, more diverse words about what is deemed the same and what is viewed as different.
It’s been officially 2 months since I have taken TBL Journal offline for “temporary” updates. To be quite honest, the updates for TBL Journal were scheduled to be routine and quick. This was before I decided to relaunch TBL Journal so that its mission and goal were updated to reflect the evolving nature of lit journals. It has done so to my satisfaction—and hopefully to yours as well.
