An Opportunity for Budding writers

Adda, an online platform created by the Commonwealth Writers, where writers and readers can talk to each other across the global and geopolitical divides is looking to commission a number of stories in the coming months. Each commission will be given detailed editorial attention to ensure a level of quality in the stories published and also to offer the writers – especially those less experienced – a process to develop their writing.
They are looking to select a broad range of stories, particularly those which haven’t been heard before.

They are offering one-off commissions:
Fiction – short stories
Nonfiction – which can include creative nonfiction, memoir, photo or narrative essay

There are no subject restrictions.
No previously published work will be considered, including work published in anthologies, chapbooks or online.

For fiction submissions please send:
Your short story (1500 – 5000 words), or a completed first draft
A description of your writing history (300 words max)
Your contact details (including postal address, email and telephone number) and nationality. Please note, they can only accept submissions from citizens of Commonwealth countries

For nonfiction submissions please send:
Your nonfiction piece (1500 – 5000 words), or an outline of what you want to write and why (750 words max), plus a sample of your nonfiction writing (2000 words max)
A description of your writing history (300 words)
Your contact details (including postal address, email and telephone number) and nationality. Please note, they can only accept submissions from citizens of Commonwealth countries

If you are offered a nonfiction commission, there may also be a small expenses fund available to help you to research your piece e.g. local travel. Please state in your submission if you would need us to help with research expenses and what these would be.
At the moment, we can only accept work/proposals written in English.
Please send your submissions to commonwealthwriters@gmail.com by 11:59pm (any time zone) on 29 August with the subject heading ‘adda submission’.
You’ll hear back from Adda by 7th October 2016.

Deadline: Monday 29 August (11.59 pm in any time zone)
