Oct. 24, 2002 – The deadline for submissions to The Caribbean Writer, an international literary anthology published by UVI, has been extended to Dec. 31 for its Volume 17 issue.
The Caribbean should be central to the work or the work should reflect a Caribbean heritage, experience or perspective.
Writers may submit poems, short stories, personal essays and one-act plays. Only previously unpublished work will be considered; if self-published, give details. Include brief biographical information and put name, address, telephone number, e-mail address (if any) and title of manuscript on a separate sheet of paper. Only the title should appear on the manuscript.
Contributions towards a special section on Wilson Harris are also being solicited for this particular volume. Writers are asked to comment on Harris’ Caribbean vision, its significance and his legacy. Above guidelines also apply to this section.
All submissions are eligible for 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 Island author; and the Charlotte and Isidor Paiewonsky Prize for first-time publication in The Caribbean Writer.
