The Caribbean Writer Issues Call for Submission for Volume 36 through Online Portal

The Caribbean Writer (TCW) has issued a call for submissions for Volume 36 under the 2021 theme: Disruption, Disguise, and Illuminations. As history meets our 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. Submissions exploring this theme in its widest permutations are invited.

Contributors 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 all creative works: drama, fiction, and poetry manuscripts, through the online portal only at

Submission should be made by Word files only and no PDFs will not be accepted. Please note that The Caribbean Writer will no longer accept hardcopy submissions.
