The Caribbean Writer Seeks Submissions


For almost two decades, Caribbean authors, poets and playwrights have found a home for their work in The Caribbean Writer, the annual anthology of the University of the Virgin Islands.
The twentieth anniversary issue is scheduled for release in 2006, and the publishers are seeking out more pieces. The deadline is Nov. 30, 2005.
"It's a landmark event," said Editor Marvin Williams in a press release issued Friday. "It marks a milestone in the history of The Caribbean Writer."
This year, as in the past, several awards are up for grabs. The awards include 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.
Only works that have not been published elsewhere will be considered for the anthology.
To submit a piece, mail it to The Caribbean Writer, University of the Virgin Islands, RR 1, Box 10,000, Kingshill, St. Croix, USVI 00850-9781. To submit a piece by e-mail, send it to [email protected]. For rules and more information on the anthology, go to The Caribbean Writer Web site, or call 692-4152.
