Fundraising Appeal
Charles
Have you ever taken notice of the instant when a match ignites into a flame? It is analogous to that moment in time when a dynamically creative idea begins to succumb to its greatest potential.

This is what is happening right NOW as yours truly, Charles Reese has been selected to be a presenter for The International James Baldwin Conference in Paris, France. May 26-28, 2016.

Though the conference has ended, the initial target has not yet been reached, and donations to reach this target will still be very much needed in connection with the conference and related performances

in Paris following on from it.

Please consider giving and sharing this special  fundraising campaign link for Mr. Reese Goes To Paris 2016 with yours friends, associates and ALL social media platforms:

www.gofundme.com/charlesgoestoparis.

Thanks in advance for your continued generous support.

With Gratitude and Appreciation,

CHARLES REESE
Actor, Author, Educator, & Cultural Architect for Public Engagement

Submissions

Akashic Books: Open for Submissions

We are now accepting submissions for three of our online flash fiction series: Mondays Are Murder, Duppy Thursday, and Terrible Twosdays. Submission guidelines can be found below and on our website. *Please note that while we are eager to receive your flash fiction submissions, we are not currently reading full-length works.

Brooklyn Noir

Mondays Are Murder

Mondays Are Murder features brand-new noir fiction modeled after our award-winning Noir Series. Each story is an original one, and each takes place in a distinct location. Contributions to the Akashic Noir Series are bound by mood: our authors are challenged to capture the sometimes intangible moods of “noir” and of “place.” The stories run the gamut from darkly-toned literary glimpses to straight-up crime fiction, while similarly capturing the unique aura of the story’s location. Our web model for the series has one more restraint: a 750-word limit. Sound like murder? It is. But so are Mondays.

Do you have a story you’d like us to consider for online publication in the Mondays Are Murder flash fiction series? Here are the submission terms and guidelines:

—We are not offering payment, and are asking for first digital rights. The rights to the story revert to the author immediately upon publication.

—Your story should be set in a distinct location of any neighborhood in any city, anywhere in the world, but it should be a story that could only be set in the neighborhood you chose.

—Include the neighborhood, city, state, and country next to your byline.

—Your story should be Noir. What is Noir? We’ll know it when we see it.

—Your story should not exceed 750 words.

—Accepted submissions are typically published 6–8 months after their notification date and will be edited for cohesion and to conform to our house style.

—E-mail your submission to info@akashicbooks.com. Please paste the story into the body of the email, and also attach it as a PDF file.

 John Crow’s Devil

Duppy Thursday

Though we’re based in Brooklyn, our location envy of the Caribbean is evident throughout our catalog. One aspect of Caribbean literature that appeals to us is the integration of folklore into contemporary stories—a perfect example being Jamaican author Marlon James’s debut novel John Crow’s Devil, which we published to great critical acclaim in 2005. Whether it be the spider Anansi, the devil woman La Diablesse, the Soucouyant, Mama Dlo, or Papa Bois, these mythical beings have injected life (and death) into the literature of the region. As with our other flash fiction series, we challenge you to tell your story in 750 words or less.

Do you have a story you’d like us to consider for online publication in the Duppy Thursday flash fiction series? Here are the submission terms and guidelines:

—We are not offering payment, and are asking for first digital rights. The rights to the story revert to the author immediately upon publication.

—Your story should be set in a Caribbean location and incorporate some aspect of folklore, whether centrally or tangentially.

—Include the location and the referenced folk tale or figure of the story with your byline.

—Your story should not exceed 750 words.

—Please include a short bio with your submission.

—Accepted submissions are typically published 6–8 months after their notification date and will be edited for cohesion and to conform to our house style.

—E-mail your submission to info@akashicbooks.com. Please paste the story into the body of the email, and also attach it as a PDF file.

—Include the location and the referenced folk tale or figure of the story with your byline.

—Your story should not exceed 750 words.

—Please include a short bio with your submission.

—Accepted submissions to Duppy Thursday are typically posted 2–4 months after the notification date, and will be edited for cohesion and to conform to our house style.

—E-mail your submission to info@akashicbooks.com. Please paste the story into the body of the email, and also attach it as a PDF file.

Terrible Twosdays

Are you a parent going through the Terrible Twos? Did you live through them and survive? Terrible Twosdays is a place to commiserate over the unending shenanigans of your Darling Children (as the online parenting communities say). Nonfiction stories will be considered, so long as names have been changed to protect the guilty. Inspired by our best-selling gift book for parents, Go the Fuck to Sleep, Terrible Twosdays joins the roster of our other online short fiction series. Unlike Mondays Are Murder, we’re looking for stories with a light and mischievous feel, all about the day-to-day challenges of parenting. As with our other flash fiction series, stories must not exceed 750 words.

Do you have a story you’d like us to consider for online publication in the Terrible Twosdays flash fiction series? Here are the submission terms and guidelines:

—We are not offering payment, and are asking for first digital rights. The rights to the story revert to the author immediately upon publication.

—Your story should focus on the challenges of parenting. Ideally, stories should be about children aged 0 to 5, but any age (up to early teens) is acceptable. Stories may be fiction or nonfiction.

—Include the child’s age at the time of the story next to your byline.

—Your story should not exceed 750 words.

—Accepted submissions are typically published 2–4 months after the notification date and will be edited for cohesion and to conform to our house style.

—E-mail your submission to info@akashicbooks.com. Please paste the story into the body of the email, and also attach it as a PDF file.

*Print Submissions: Akashic Books is not accepting print submissions at this time, as our small staff is overwhelmed with work on our current release schedule and forthcoming titles. To uncover other publishing opportunities, we suggest you follow the threads at the Independent Book Publishers Association, The Center for Fiction, and the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses, all of which are excellent organizations of independent publishers.

Global Social Theory: Call for Contributions

You may be familiar with the new research and pedagogy resource ‘Global Social Theory‘ (http://globalsocialtheory.org/) which is partly inspired by the ‘Why is my curriculum white?‘ movement and seeks to build a series of accessible introductions to truly global thinkers, as well as to important

concepts and topics.

The site is now widely used as a teaching resource, which is wonderful, but we still need to build up the content in order to keep the project growing.

Many key thinkers have yet to be profiled, including Said, Spivak, Bhabha, Walter Rodney, Chakrabarty, and other prominent scholars. However, we would also like many more entries on thinkers who have not been canonised in Western scholarship, or who work through registers other than academic texts, such as music, poetry or fiction.

Otherwise, many key concepts and topics have yet to be covered including, land, labour, freedom, space, sovereignty, subjectivity, violence, security, and so on.

So, please write to email address below, if you would like to contribute a summary of a concept, topic or thinker. Entries have ranged from shorter 300 word summaries to more detailed 900 word overviews, but each entry includes ‘Essential Readings’ ‘Further Readings’ and some key ‘Questions’ which are very useful in a classroom setting.

Please send contributions to Lisa.Tulley@WARWICK.AC.UK
