  1. When is the deadline for submission to Bim? I write both traditional and modern poetry. Would like to forward some of my poems for Bim Magazine. I know that Errol Barrow day is a few days away. In fact a day after the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of USA. I have written poems about Errol Barrow. I’m happy to share my poems with you. Please come by to my website. Leave a comment or more.

    Cheers

      Dear Paterika:

      My apologies for delay in response! Somehow your post was missed until today!

      I really want to say thanks for visiting and commenting at Seawoman’s Caribbean Writing Opps. There are updates I’m sure you’ll find of interest. Don’t forget to use the search box too.

      RE: Entering your work for BIM
      They do publish a few times a year so you can check back here or contact them directly for the next deadline/theme. I also hope you prepare for NIFCA which is a great way to grow and build writing credits. My experience tells me that these avenues do appreciate a writer making the most of older forms as well attention to crafting, attention to detail and freshness.

      Be advised that prestigious competitions and anthologies like these often require that the work is unpublished. DO NOT send them work you have included on the Internet because that counts as published work!

      I hope though overdue, this is a help.

      If you are on Facebook look for me or Caribbean Writers. Of course please visit Seawoman again.
