Dec. 6, 2001 – The deadline has been extended to Dec. 31 for submitting material to be considered for inclusion in Volume 16 of "The Caribbean Writer," the international literary anthology published by the University of the Virgin Islands.
Editor Erika J. Waters said Wednesday that the deadline was extended from Nov. 30 for the issue, which will be published in 2002.
Writers may submit poems, short stories, personal essays and one-act plays. The Caribbean should be central to the material, or it should reflect a Caribbean heritage, experience or perspective. The anthology mainly carries previously unpublished work, although self-published pieces will be considered.
Submissions that are accepted will be considered for the following awards: the Canute A. Brodhurst Prize for best short story, the Daily News Prize for best poetry, the David Hough Literary Prize to a Caribbean author, the Marguerite Cobb-McKay Prize to a Virgin Islands author, and the Charlotte and Isidor Paiewonsky Prize for first-time publication in "The Caribbean Writer."
A manuscript should carry no identifying information except for title. On a separate sheet of paper, the author should provide the manuscript title; the writer's name, address, telephone, e-mail, brief biographical information; and, if the material has been self-published, details about that.
Submissions may be mailed to The Caribbean Writer, University of the Virgin Islands, RR 02, Box 10,000, Kingshill, St. Croix VI 00850. They may be e-mailed to qmars@uvi.edu. The Dec. 31 deadline is for mailed materials to be postmarked and for e-mailed materials to be transmitted.
For more information, call (340) 692-4152 or visit the Caribbean Writer web site.
