Call for Submissions for 2018 Crater Literary Festival, Enugu
We are thrilled to announce a call for entries for the 2018 Crater Literary Festival E-Anthology. The theme for this year’s e-anthology is: A Dose of Utopia: Stories from the other fence.
The difference between utopia and dystopia isn’t the technology. We can have a high-tech heaven-on-earth or a high-tech hell. The difference is our culture, how we treat one another and how we care for the rest of life on earth. Don’t get me wrong, I believe that scientists do God’s work as much as anyone. But without the writers, the philosophers and the soulful guidance of religious leaders, we will veer dangerously toward a future of the rich getting richer and the poor being disposable. That is why I’ll be a writer until my days above the ground are done. Writers together can educate through fictional stories in a way that direct teaching cannot, people need to form their own conclusions. So never let anyone belittle your talent for the written word. The world needs creative writers as much as the mathematicians and engineers, perhaps even more so. –Angela Abraham (Daisy)
In a world where we all seek a place, we have amassed different experiences that have changed our view of what should be or shouldn’t be. As a result of these diverse experience and struggles, we believe that one’s idea of utopia is hardly the same as another’s.
Do you dream of having the opportunity to create and shape your own ideal world? Here is the chance to let us see the world as you would want it.
