Issues unique to the Caribbean should be central to the work, or the work should reflect a Caribbean heritage, experience, or perspective.

Besides the usual poetry, short fiction and essays, Volume 29 will highlight contradictions and ambiguities in the Caribbean space; therefore, interviews, personal narratives, one act plays highlighting this theme are welcome.

Individuals are encouraged to submit poems (five maximum), short stories and personal essays on general topics and also on the Caribbean musicians and visual artists theme. One-act plays will also be accepted. Only previously unpublished work will be considered. (If self-published, give details.)
