Christmas in the Caribbean is a special time; it can be reverent, magical, colourful, and festive … all in the same day. Each island celebrates Christmas a little differently; on some islands you might see a Spanish or French flair, on others carnival might play a part of the Christmas season. Whatever it is there is a lot to learn and to celebrate and it is important that we pass these traditions on to our children.
CaribbeanReads is seeking email submissions of art, poetry, and short stories from Caribbean citizens for a Caribbean Christmas anthology. The book is intended to delight readers with tales of the holiday spirit, traditions, and values in the Caribbean islands, and will highlight Christmas as well as other traditional celebrations that take place at Christmastime in the Caribbean. The book will be aimed at children 6 to 9 years old.
We are seeking original, beautifully crafted submissions with strong “kid appeal”. Authors should tell a good story that is well plotted, character-driven, and has a satisfying conclusion. All submissions should be sent by email tosubmissions[at]CaribbeanReads[dot]com and must follow the guidelines outlined on their website. The submission deadline is June 30, 2014.
