Issue 2: Duende: the Latin American Writers Issue

ANTIQUE CHILDREN: A Mischievous Literary Arts Journal is preparing the second quarterly journal on Latin American Writers, due out in Summer.

We’re looking for writers to pen creative essays on these Latin American Writers or review these books.  You may write a piece of fiction but it must envelop one of these writers and their selected book.

For example: You may write a story about your transvestite grandfather who carried a copy of Jose Donoso’s “Hell Has No Limits” in his bra as he went in search of the characters depicted in the book.   Thus, you have to read the book yourself and review it through your own work of fiction.  Or you may write a straight essay/review.
