Women's Short Fiction

A volume of critical essays to be published by Atlantic Publishers &
Distributors. Co-editors: Dr. Mittapalli Rajeshwar and Dr. Joel Kuortti.

We will greatly welcome your high-quality contribution to this volume
which will provide an interesting international forum for the discussion
of Indian women's short fiction. International critical attention to this
kind of writing has been growing lately but there are still few works that
discuss Indian women's stories specifically. The present anthology seeks
to amend this apparent lack. After all, the eminent scholar M. K. Naik has
claimed that it was Cornelia Sorabji who pioneered the Indian short story
in English. Contributions can be on individual works or on particular
themes. This volume will be one of an ongoing series of critical essays by
international scholars of repute, published by Atlantic Publishers &
Distributors. We invite your collaboration.

Articles could be between 5,000 and 15,000 words and in English. British
spelling is preferred. References, Endnotes, and Works Cited should
conform to the latest (5th) edition of the MLA Handbook (1999) or the
latest (2nd) edition of the MLA Style Manual (see the MLA website at

Articles that have been previously published (in traditional and/or
electronic form) are acceptable provided the copyright lies with you.
Previous publication may be credited.

Submissions, preferably in MS Word 97/2000 format, may be sent either by
e-mail (as an attachment) or on floppy disk to either editor. Mailing a
hard copy to the editors is acceptable if you do not have access to a
computer. The deadline for submissions will be 31 March, 2004.
