We have re-opened submissions until the 29th February 2012, and will be publishing (if all goes well) on Marechera's 60th Birthday next year.

We are looking for excellence in essays, reviews, short stories, poems, and interviews, which show new insights into Marechera's works and life. Fun, interesting, and probing works that feature Marechera, directly or indirectly, as a major theme. What effects did he have personally, socially, in literature, academically, historically, contemporary, and what effects did they have on him? What drove his demons and saints, etc.?
