Anansesem December 2012 Issue: Call for Submissions

Anansesem Caribbean children's ezine is now accepting submissions for our December 2012 issue. Adults, we are looking for poems, art, nonfiction articles and stories that Caribbean children will enjoy and relate to. Although Caribbean writers and artists are given first preference, you absolutely don't have to be from the Caribbean to submit your work, however submitting Caribbean-themed work will increase your chances of having your submission accepted.

Work by Caribbean/Caribbean Diaspora Kids

We are also looking for more work by kids ages 8-16. We're trying our best to make the ezine more child-centered. Writing, poems and art by children is what we're really after. Teachers and parents, give your kids the opportunity to see their work published online. It's up to us to foster children's creative development! Please follow the guidelines for submitting work by kids stated here our website. Although Caribbean child writers and artists are given first preference, a child does not have to be from the Caribbean to submit their work, however submitting Caribbean-themed work will increase the chances of having the submission accepted.

  1. The link to Guidelines for Adults does not appear to be working, although the kids' one does. Could you please let me know the link? Thanks very much.

  3. Hi. The link to Guidelines for Adults still is not working for me and there is no orange navigation bar appearing at the top of the page. Could you please let me know the link? Thanks very much.

  4. Hmm, that's strange. I've asked others to look at the page and they can see the nav bar just fine. There should be a horizontal nav bar with a 'Submit: Adults' tab at the top of all the pages on the site. The link in the Call for Submissions is fixed now though.
