Are you an upcoming writer? Then you should read this...
CAVALCADE, a literary journal, devoted to publishing original stories, poems, one-act plays, reviews, critical essays and art from an African perspective, debuted in November 2008 with a special edition. The tri-annual journal, a project of the Abuja Writers' Forum (AWF), is now seeking submissions for the third and subsequent editions
All works must be submitted by email in the form of a single Microsoft Word compatible attachment or pasted in the body of the mail. Be sure your name and email address appear on each page. Please put "Fiction," "Poetry," “One Act Play”, "Essay", “Review” or “Art” in the subject line of the email. Submissions that do not follow these guidelines risk being unread.
Fiction, essays and reviews must not exceed 5,000 words. Please do not submit more than one work of short story, one-act play, essay or review, and send ONLY three poems and five art works per submission. Art submissions must be in jpeg format.
You may submit works that have been previously published as long as you still own the copyright and all reproduction rights. Check with the previous publisher before submitting such works to CAVALCADE. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but please notify us if work has been accepted elsewhere. All rights revert to the author upon publication, though CAVALCADE expects to be credited when the work is republished.
Contributors will be notified if their materials are selected and will in turn indicate their willingness to have the materials published in CAVALCADE. Contributors will not be paid for their works but will receive a copy of the edition in which their works appear.
Submissions are welcome all through the year except for a special edition when the specifics will be announced including a deadline for submissions.
Send submissions to cavalcade@bigstring .com. The genre editors will notify contributors if their materials are selected and will in turn indicate their willingness to have the materials published in Cavalcade.
