Call for Applications
CALLALOO, the premier literary journal of the African Diaspora, is now accepting applications for the 2015 Barbados CALLALOO CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP (CCWW) until January 15, 2015.

The 2015 Barbados CCWW will be hosted by The Faculty of Humanities and Education at the University of the West Indies at Cave Hill. Vievee Francis and Ravi Howard will serve as the 2015 workshop leaders.
Vievee Francis is the author of Horse in the Dark (Northwestern University Press, 2012), which won the Cave Canem Northwestern University Poetry Prize for a second collection, and Blue-Tail Fly (Wayne State University, 2006). Her third book, Forest Primeval, is slated for release in 2015 (Northwestern University Press).
Ravi Howard was, in 2008, a finalist for The Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award and for the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award for his debut novel, Like Trees, Walking. In 2008, he won the Ernest J. Gaines Award for Literary Excellence. His second novel, Driving the King, will be published in January 2015.
