[Call for Sumissions] African Writers Abroad

Everybody moves on eventually… African Writers Abroad are currently accepting memoir submissions from women of African descent for our forthcoming anthology on the theme of moving.

Moving is something that most of us have had to do at some time. Whether changing countries, cities or even streets the experience can be an emotional one. Fear, excitement, joy, hope are just some of the sensations that you may have felt when you had to move.

African Writers Abroad are looking for poignant memoir pieces about moving.

Why did you move? How far did you go? How did moving make you feel? What did you leave behind? What did you hope to find — and did you find it?

This anthology will reflect a broad range of voices, viewpoints and experiences. Whether you have moved once, twice or several times, we want to read your stories of real life experiences and journal/diary entries.

Guidelines for submissions:

  • 2,000 words maximum 3,500 words double-spaced.
  • Please submit by email attachment in Microsoft Word, Arial, 12 point font.
  • Deadline for submissions: 31 July 2008.
  • Please send submissions as an attachment to: africanwritersabroad@yahoo.com.
  • Please c.c. your submission to Andrea Enisuoh: aenisuoh@googlemail.com.

Andrea Enisuoh is a writer, editor and literature consultant.
