Oshyn Publications is excited to announce our first open submissions for a poetry anthology from South African poets, or poets living in South Africa. This is the first time we are announcing an open reading period and we are looking forward to reading exciting new work. Please take note the following information :
Uncensored Poets is a poetry project that aims to capture issues that take height in South Africa during the year. These issues range from social, political to environmental and economical. To be considered for the project you are required to send one poem that captures either one issue or a number of issues that you have observed during the year. Your poem should be accompanied by your biography of about 10-15 lines which will also include the reason why you would like to be part of the project and how your inclusion will contribute to the project.
¨ Submission will be open from the 1st of November 2017 to the 31st of January 2018.
¨ Poem must be written in any language of the writer’s choice.
¨ Every manuscript will be read, and all will be considered for publication.
¨ We accept poems from writers of any experience, published or not. The only criterion for eligibility is that writers either be South African, or permanent citizens of South Africa.
Only writers of successful submissions will be replied to, and will be offered our standard contract. Please note that this is not a competition: we reserve the right to publish none of the manuscripts received during this submissions period. Submission will only be accepted through our email address, email@example.com, as either .doc or .pdf attachments with all text in Times New Roman.
