The Bienvenido N. Santos Creative Writing Center (BNSCWC) and Literature Department of De La Salle University-Manila announce call for literary submissions for Tag-araw 4, the MFA Creative Writing Journal.
Open to current and MFA graduates of DLSU-Manila, submissions can be in different genres such as poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, drama, and everything in between. As much as possible, no limits are imposed on the number of pages for each work or number of entries for each individual. However, writers using longer forms (such as novels) are encouraged to submit only an excerpt (e.g. one or two chapters) that can best illustrate the novel’s thematic and stylistic preoccupations. Only literary submissions will be entertained; hence, critical papers will not be accepted.
All submitted works will be subjected to screening and editing process by the editors; the issue will then be refereed by the associates of the BNSCWC. The target online publication of Tag-Araw 4 is on December 2013.
All submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org in .doc or .docx format and accompanied by a short biographical note. The deadline for submission of entries is on May 10, 2013. For questions, you may send an email to the same address with the word “INQUIRY” on the subject line.
