Submissions are sought on the following:

Mansfield travelled extensively in continental Europe during her lifetime. Nearly four years of her short adult life were spent there – in Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland and Belgium. Many of her stories were written abroad, many have continental themes and/or European settings. As a writer, she has also received huge critical acclaim in many European countries – far more than in her homeland of New Zealand or her adopted adult homeland, England.
The following is a list of topics which may provide inspiration, though the list is by no means exhaustive:
