NEXT ISSUE – A History of Violence: The Making of Caribbean Society
Caribbean societies are said to be brimming with violence, and the popular sentiment would suggest this is new for the region. While we would agree that the current wave of violence reflects nihilistic tones, we know that this violence is not new, but rather the wanton manifestation of a society that was wrought out of violence.
Submit poems, prose, artwork, interviews that address the various manifestation of violence in Caribbean society, among its people and offer alternative, suggestions, coping mechanism, etc.
Seeking work that is edgy and explores: Political, Domestic, Child, Emotional, Terrorism, Economic, Class, Education and any other manifestation of Violence.
