Dear Fellow Writers,
You may be familiar with the anthology that Tropical Writers publishes each year. This year we have been able to employ outside selectors and editors for our anthology, and have opened up the field to include outside submissions.
If you have a short story or poem you would like to have published in our book, please send me an email and I’ll send you our submission guidelines. The theme for submission is ‘something tropical’, but that will be loosely interpreted. The deadline for submission is June 30, 2011.
Our selectors and editors are listed below. If your story is chosen by them to be in the 2011 anthology, it may be sent back to you for further editing.
Dr Dosia Reichhardt is a tutuor/lecturer in the School of Humanities at James Cook University department. Dosia has edited the Poetry section of LiNQ (Literature in North Queensland) magazine. She is currently researching Renaissance and Early Modern Poetry, 6th and 17th century Visual Arts and Fairy Tales in Contemporary Culture.
Glyn Davies is a retired university lecturer who most recently conducted a short course at James Cook University entitled ‘Writing the Short Story’. Glyn has had vast experience in teaching at university level, editing manuscripts and play reviewing. Glyn is currently writing his memoirs and is involved in the Arts and Alliance Francaise on the Atherton Tableland.
Chrys Spicer is an editor and writing teacher at James Cook university. Chrys is the author of Fall Girl: My Life as a Western Stunt Double and The life story of Clark Gable. Currently Chrys is working on another two non-fiction manuscripts, which will be released later this year.
