Writing the Black Country

updated:

The University of Wolverhampton
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 30, 2018

Writing the Black Country is a blog edited by Dr Paul McDonald and R. M. Francis, from the Centre of Transnational and Transcultural Research at University of Wolverhampton in the UK. It's designed to showcase writing about England's industrial Midlands, and we are interested particularly in poetry and short prose pieces that focus on specific areas within the region.

We're less interested in writing about the region generally, but are looking for site, place or area specific work. For example, using a town, a street, a site as a point of departure or as setting for a work of fiction or poetry.

In time, this blog will transition, becoming an online, interactive literary map.
