Dr. Iddah Otieno seeking poets and short story writers
I (Dr. Otieno) am looking for short stories and poems for an edited collection of contemporary short stories and poems from East Africa. The dawn of the new century has witnessed significant changes in the socio-economic, political, and cultural landscape in the East African region. The purpose of the proposed volume is to highlight these experiences from East Africa's colonial past to neo-colonial present through short stories and poems.
Suggested topics may include, but are not limited to, themes of alienation, search for identity, the changing face of East Africa, education is a changing society, African families in transition, globalization and information technology, among other thematic areas. Contributors should send completed short stories (7-10 pages double-spaced ) and poems (1-2 pages double-spaced) , 12 points Times New Roman to Dr. Iddah Otieno via e-mail at Iddah.Otieno@kctcs.edu by May 30, 2013. Contributors will be notified by June 15, 2013. Any questions should be directed to Dr. Iddah Otieno via e-mail. Please share this with your colleagues. Let me know if you have questions. All entries must include: (1) author name; (2) institution of affiliation; (3) rank; (4) area of expertise; (5) e-mail contact; (6) a 50 word author biography. Thanking you in advance.
