The 2009 Creative Writing Issue of the South Asian Review
Short Stories and Creative Nonfiction—Writing from the Margins
SOUTH ASIAN REVIEW invites submissions for the 2009 Creative Writing issue, Volume 30, Number 3. The issue will showcase South Asian writing that either focuses on or emerges from the "margins," which creative writers may interpret broadly in terms of class, caste, gender, sexuality, or geographical location (for example, the North East Indian states, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Union of Myanmar, and Sri Lanka, among other such heretofore under-represented locales).
Creative writers from any background are welcome to submit original short stories or creative nonfiction, provided these are on South Asian subjects. English translations of short stories and creative nonfiction from Indian languages are also welcome.
Submissions must be received by Friday, July 30, 2009. A work must not be longer than five thousand words. Each submission must be accompanied with a statement that the work or translation has not appeared elsewhere in any other format, either in print or online. Translators must have in hand the copyright permission from the original authors or their estates. Manuscripts should be double-spaced and prepared as Microsoft Word documents. They may be sent via e-mail as attachments. Manuscripts sent via surface mail should include three printed copies and an electronic copy in on a floppy or compact disc. In addition, authors should send a brief biographical note and their mailing address. Manuscripts will not be returned.
SOUTH ASIAN REVIEW, the refereed journal of the South Asian Literary Association, is a representative international forum for the scholarly examination of South Asian languages and literatures in a contemporary cultural context. The journal is published four times a year: the Special Topic issue (June/July); the Regular issue (October); the Creative Writing issue (November); and the Conference issue (December).
