Writing Nicosia… beyond barriers: An anthology

Literary Agancy Cyprus
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 30, 2016

How do we imagine Nicosia beyond barriers – either physical, social or mental? Can we imagine Nicosia beyond barriers? Can Nicosia – as a site that is at once shared, divided and contested – invite and inspire us to write it, to be creative because of and about it?

We invite contributions from writers of fiction and non-fiction, poets, playwrights and cross-genre writers writing in English for the forthcoming anthology Writing Nicosia… beyond barriers.

The editors of Global Railway Cultures: Train Travel in Fiction, Film, Music and Visual Art (Benjamin Fraser, East Carolina Univ. and Steven Spalding, United States Naval Academy) seek chapters on train travel as it appears in cultural production (literature, film, graphic novels, popular music, visual art, digital media...) from across the globe. Authors may employ any number of literary, cultural, historical, geographical, anthropological, sociological or psychological approaches. Although titles, abstracts, and chapters should be written in English, we seek global coverage and invite contributors to focus on any linguistic, cultural, or (inter)national context.
