    Kindly note the change of EMAIL ADDRESS for the Co-ordinator, Angela Trotman for emailing your submissions:

    Also note that should your submission(s) be accepted, they will require a BRIEF BIO (50-100 words) to be included in the anthology. If you blog, don’t forget to include in your bio!

    Is the 1800-5000 the limit for poetry submissions as well ?

    Hi Malachi:

    Yes. The address is trotman@uwichill.edu.bb.

    I apologize about the wacky link in the post. I’ve corrected it!

    I’ve had work published in POUI already and it’s really a worthwhile addition to your writing credits. Don’t expect a quick response but I assure you, they ALWAYS do.

    Good luck!

    Power from the pen!
