Deadline: Oct. 9, 2017.
Invisible Borders recently launched a project to publish a series of books for children ages 7 to 12. It seeks African writers and illustrators to work on the first book in its new project. The series will present fictionalized accounts of the lives and exploits of selected Africans, as well as stories of societies, civilizations, and cultures within the context of Africa’s history.
The series seeks to target children of ages 7 to 12. And, the team will pay the selected writer and illustrator.
Therefore, submit a 4,000-word children story manuscript. Include a short bio, a CV, and a three-five page sample of children’s writing or a portfolio containing at least 12 illustrations. Also, save your documents and illustrations as PDF files. And, email these documents to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The goal of the project is to show the connections between Africa’s past and its present. The team hopes to show the relevance of history and its crucial role in shaping who we are. It believes that it can sow curiosity in the minds of children about Africa and its history and stories through this project. This way, the children can grow up asking questions. Thereby, seeking out obscure truths about their identities and place in the world.
