    Call for Submissions: Adventures in Desiland.

    The Masala Trois Collective enthusiastically invites submissions – short fiction and verse – for their upcoming collection of South Asian children’s stories, Adventures in Desiland. Like all well crafted children’s stories, across eras and traditions, we hope the stories in Adventures in Desiland will engage and delight adults and children alike.

    Submission may include retelling ancient tales, such as those found in the Panchatantra, using contemporary dialogue and idiom. Similarly, submissions that creatively “South Asianize" or desify well known western children’s stories would fit nicely in the collection (there’s plenty of room for satire here – think James Finn Garr’s Politically Correct Bedtime Stories, or a Hinglish version of Dr. Seuss). Other original submissions will be considered, variously, on how skillfully they feature strong, central characters that are South Asian children, present fresh, non-stereotypical portraits of South Asian families, or help children and parents creatively explore South Asian histories.

    Follow the brown rabbit. . .

    Submissions and questions can be directed to editors@masalatrois.com.
