The Wisconsin Review of African Literatures

Voices is a forum for exploring issues of written and oral artistic
production in Africa and the Diaspora in relation to the continent.
Submissions that stretch and challenge such disciplinary boundaries are
welcome and will be considered for publication. We will distribute copies
of Voices to American universities with interest in African studies, and to
African institutions which may have more difficulty in
maintaining/developing their collections of research in African literature.
We invite submissions from writers world-wide. Voices is complemented by a
web site with the aim of cultivating a broad readership and interactive
academic network.

Call for Papers

We invite the submission of articles, essays, book reviews of recently
published works, translations and original creative works (short stories,
poetry, art, drama, renderings of oral narratives).
