Who We Are

Black Muse Publishing honors Akhenaten, King of Ancient Kemet, for being the inspiration of the Armana Period in the New Kingdom. We use his image as our company logo to celebrate his badassness during his 17-year reign (1353-1336 BCE). Akhenaten led a cultural, religious, and artistic revolution that transformed the New Kingdom and tossed out thousands of years of tradition. We seek artists like Akhenaten. Those willing to ignore the status quo, flip the norms upside down, and push beyond comfort zones in order to educate, inspire, and enlighten the world with their work.

Our Mission

We are committed to publishing the culturally conscious, spiritually enlightening, and socially engaging prose, poetry, creative inspiration, and artistic expression of people of the African diaspora or other culturally marginalized and historically silenced voices.
