African Short Stories Vol. 2
Call for Submissions
The short story is an important but largely neglected medium for artistic and educational development of many cultures. Most creative writers and novelists had started out with short story writing although few have been consistent and successful in handling the compressed narrative structure of the story telling tradition. In many African cultures it has been an elegant, celebrated means of cultural transmission and moral upbringing of the young. The International Society of Literary Fellows, a.k.a., Literary Society int., in conjunction with the International Research Council on African Literature and Culture, IRCALC, is poised to revive reading and critical interest in African short fictions and their worldwide transmission through available information and distribution media.
