jalada_logo_final-01JA 04: The Language Issue the fourth anthology from Jalada Africa is now in the works and you sire/madam are being asked to give your submission. This new anthology follows in the wake of Sketch of a bald woman in the semi-nude and other stories, Sext Me poems and stories and Afrofuture (2).

This new anthology will be a celebration of language, featuring fiction, poetry, visual art and various essays on the very subject of Language. Writers are asked to submit original works written in their own languages and provide an accompanying English translation. We also ask writers to feel free to treat Language as a theme, where language can be a character, a topic in a story or even incorporate languages other than English as the theme in the story. Writers may also write in English or various Englishes.

Submissions will be received between April 15th and July 15th 2015 and the anthology will be published in September 2015.
