The editors of a new anthology project called Voices invite writers and artists to submit their work for publication.

The objective of the publication is to use art and literature to tell stories exploring space and place within a globalized world.

The theme of the issue currently being assembled is the ancient city of Ife, an iconic space in Yoruba mythology and history.

Here is how Caleb Adebayo, the publisher of the anthology, explains it:

Ile-Ife is an ancient Yoruba town in Southwestern Nigeria, Osun State. Also known as Ife, the town is renowned for its place in Yoruba folk myth as the traditional home of Yoruba civilization and doubles as a holy city of humankind. It boasts of art and culture and rich history that stands it out as one of the most desirable archaeological sites in Southwestern Nigeria. These exquisite characteristics of the small city peppered with mysteries ignite the interest to debut this anthology with this place- Ife.

We are accepting submissions from all over on the theme of ‘Ife’. We believe in the concept of borderlessness, that everyone can talk about every place, especially through art and literature, and we want to reach every one in every place with the stories and pictures and arts of Ife as well.

Pretty much all genres—fiction, non-fiction, art, photography, poetry, and book reviews— are accepted. The one thing to keep in mind is that your work is more likely to be accepted if it is “compelling and atypical,” genuinely and refreshingly creative, boundary pushing and “dynamic.”
