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 http://www.mla.org/).
        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 NEW DEADLINE for submissions will be 31 May, 2004.
