Remembering Marechera Anthology

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

To celebrate Dambudzo Marechera’s posthumous 60th birthday we are compiling an anthology entitled “Remembering Marechera”.

We are looking for excellence in essays, reviews, short stories, poems, and interviews, which show new insights into Marechera's works and life. Fun, interesting, and probing works that feature Marechera, directly or indirectly, as a major theme. What effects did he have personally, socially, in literature, academically, historically, contemporary, and what effects did they have on him? What drove his demons and saints, etc.?

You are invited to enter your submissions until the 29th of February 2012.
