A few months ago, Jalada broke the African literature internet when they published Ngugi’s short story in 33 different languages, most of which were African languages. They essentially made history.
This time, they’ve put out a call asking writers to contribute to an anthology themed around fear.
See below for details:
Jalada is pleased to announce the call out for its sixth anthology. The anthology will be themed around Fear. From fear as weaponised terror, to the fear of the Other, the fear of love, the fear of death, the fear of failure, of success, of spiders, crowds, heights, closed spaces etc, fear is such a primal and inescapable part of living. Our phobias, the things that make us human or, indeed, inhuman, are as diverse and as peculiar as the varied lives that we lead. Our fears, and the very notion of fear as fearlessness, shape how we live, how we interact, and how we conceptualize ourselves and others. Writers are encouraged to interpret the topic widely, and to submit original works of fiction, poetry, visual art and essays.
Deadline: October 15
As usual, the editors are asking for fiction, poetry, essays, and visual art. If you have anything of high quality that fits any of those categories, make sure to send in something.
