UPDATE — NEW DEADLINE 5th August, 2010.
Calling all Asian Women Writers and Artists!!
V is getting ready for its 1st Annual Anthology. V invites submissions from all Asian Women Writers and Artists. The details of the submissions are as follows:
The theme is friction or conflict within Asian communities settled outside their home countries. The conflict could be either within one single community, i.e. Raising an issue or between two different communities. The nature of conflict is up to the writer’s choice. We just want to say that although we are very different, we love, hate, befriend, betray each other but still we are one.
It would be really great if you could contribute either poetry, short fiction or an article or all three.
There’s no restrictions on the flight of imagination. Take this opportunity to be as wild and as creative as possible as the anthology will be a mirror reflecting the talents of Asian Women across the world.
The words limits are as below:
Micro fiction – 150 to 300 words
Short Story – 1000 – 20, 000 words
Articles – 2000 to 5000 words
Poems – 300 – 2000 words
For illustrations please submit in jpeg or gif format.
The last date to submit any one or all three pieces of work is 31st July 2010.
The short listed works will be published in the form of an Anthology. Unfortunately at this time we are unable to reward the contributors with anything else apart from the satisfaction of publication. But in case our situation changes we will let the word out as soon as possible.
V has already received a number of submissions for short listing so please remember the closing date and get writing.
Please visit the Vaani website for more information.
