    I support any good Caribbean opportunity, BUT ss with ANY publishing opp., be very clear on what rights you are selling/offering. Be prepared to have your rights tied up for your work two years or so and READ the rights (link above) carefully.

    Here is an excerpt: ” legal term of the copyright shall be two calendar years commencing the first day of the month and year of publication shown on the Journal in which your work appears. The Arts Forum Inc, its Directors and its Secretary, and The Arts Journal, its Editorial and Advisory Boards, its Distributors, Stockists or other agents will not accept liability for plagiarism. Any such liability will revert to the author of the paper or work of art in question.”
