27 More Days to Submit to adda, the Commonwealth Writers Online Magazine
The Commonwealth Writers Online Magazine, adda is open for submissions of poetry, fiction and particularly, non-fiction writings themed around climate change. No doubt, climate change is an issue of the moment and all writers who are yet to attempt any form of ecocriticism should seize this opportunity.
According to adda, “We are looking for new writing on the theme of climate change. We seek poetry, fiction and – in particular – non-fiction. No previously published work will be considered, whether in print or online, in whole or in part. We will, however, consider new translations into English of work already published in other languages. We will consider commissioning new non-fiction in other languages and arrange the translation ourselves. Please note, we can only accept submissions from citizens of Commonwealth countries.
Entrants are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the work already published on www.addastories.org
Entrants are required to submit only once. i.e You may enter your work in one of the three categories: Poetry, Fiction, or Non-fiction.
Formatting guidelines: please double-space prose and single-space poetry, and use Arial 12-point font. Do not submit PDFs, but Word docs.
Submissions will be read anonymously. Please do not include any contact or personal information in the files that you submit.
Simultaneous submissions are accepted on the understanding that entrants will inform adda immediately if the text is accepted for publication elsewhere.
To submit to this call, please go to the adda website here, where you can complete the submissions form and upload:
A 300-word description of your writing history
And one of the following:
Up to two poems only (no word count, but a maximum five pages in total)
One piece of fiction writing (word count 2000-5000)
One non-fiction piece (word count 2000-5000)
One non-fiction proposal (word count 500 words maximum)
The deadline is 23:59 (in your time zone), 31 January 2020.

Every month, we encourage writers to set reading targets. Draw up personal reading schedules and add more books to their "must-read" list. You know why?
Because a book is a friend. And we writers have so few friends because we are laid back and our energy levels don't just match with the ever-bustling world.
So, tell us, what books are you reading this December? If you need suggestions, send a DM. We will be glad to suggest some books to you 🙂🙂
Enjoy your December! ... See MoreSee Less
"...but sometimes, the sky breaks into dawn with the proclamation of
thunderclaps & gloomy downpours, instead of the gaiety of sunshine,
as if to say that it, too, is still learning the art of joyfulness."

Every line of these poems is embroidered with mesmerizing metaphors. The poet @AyooluwaOlasupo shares what we would like to call a personal documentary of her journey to healing. In all, her poetry is full of hope and promise. https://eboquills.com/2020/11/19/two-poems-by-nigerian-poet-ayooluwa-olasupo/
Mustapha Enesi's (@Enesi_Is_Fine) story, TRISHA is a sizzling short story. It makes a worthy read for the adventurous. So, if you love adventures, don't sleep on this one!
