Call for Submissions

Poetry of Protest and beyond

Mānoa: A Pacific Journal of International Writing (published by the University of Hawaii Press) is welcoming submissions for its forthcoming issue “Of Tyranny.” All genres will be considered: fiction, poetry, non-fiction, theater, written in English or translated into English.  Work of the highest quality only. New or previously published (but not in publications widely distributed in the US. (Re-print permission needs to be obtained if accepted.)

Tyranny can take many forms. Political tyranny and methods of governing are the most obvious. There is also the tyranny of cultural norms, public shaming; any form of subjugation in domestic relationships, etc. and, as C.S Lewis noted, “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.”

So far we have accepted poems and essays from 27 writers around the world. There’s still room for more in this issue. Frank Stewart, Editor of Mānoa, will do the selection. You can send your work to him directly:

We look forward to seeing poetry from Hong Kong, Chile, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Venezuela… Middle East, Europe, Africa, Australia… all the countries and regions that are going through political turmoil…

Deadline: Jan 31, 2020

Thank you for your support!

MD, guest co-editor of the “tyranny” issue of Mānoa
