Call for submissions that engages Freedom of Expression

Online magazine, adda, is calling for submissions for an edition that engages with the Commonwealth Charter theme of Freedom of Expression.

We are committed to peaceful, open dialogue and the free flow of information, including through a free and responsible media, and to enhancing democratic traditions and strengthening democratic processes.
Commonwealth Charter, Article V

Writers from Commonwealth countries are invited to submit poetry, literary non-fiction, short fiction and graphic fiction that are in conversation with the Commonwealth’s commitment to freedom of expression. This could include freedom to express your beliefs, sexuality or politics.

While the call is open to all Commonwealth citizens, the foundation encourages submissions from young people and writers from small and vulnerable Member States.

A selection of up to 24 pieces will be made by a team of editors. They will be published on adda between February and June 2022.

* Deadline is 05 December 2021, 23:59, in your time zone.
