The Caribbean Writer Calls for Creative Artwork for Volume 36

The Caribbean Writer (TCW) has issued a call for artwork submissions to grace the cover and interior sections of Volume 36 under the 2021 theme: “Disruption, Disguise and Illuminations.” More and more, as history meets day-to-day experiences, epiphanies unfold and, as we self-interrogate the disruption motifs in many of these illuminations, the roots of prevailing disruptions emerge, complicated by disguise.  Artists are invited to explore and depict this theme in its widest permutations.

Those interested in having their artwork considered for use by TCW should submit electronic files in vertical format as PNG or JPEG files with a resolution of 300 dpi or greater. The journal also accepts black and white art (line drawings, sketches, block prints, etc.). Graphic poetry or narratives are not solicited or accepted.

Artwork for volume 36 will be accepted until December 31 at

In addition, writers may submit works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, essays or one-act plays that explore the ideas resonating within the region and its diaspora. The Caribbean should be central to the work, or the work should reflect a Caribbean heritage, experience or perspective. Prospective authors should submit in Word format all creative works: drama, fiction and poetry manuscripts, through the online portal only at
