  1. 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!

  2. 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!


    1. Hi Malachi:

      Hope you’ve returned since to see an answer to your query. We’ve got LOTS more going on now. Please have a look around.


Thanks for responding. You made my day!
