Vanguard Literary Services Calls Submissions For 2019 Valentine’s Day Anthology

Vanguard Literary Services Calls for Submissions to 2019 Valentine’s Day Anthology

Nigerian book marketing company Vanguard Literary Services (VLS) is compiling a romance and sexuality-themed anthology, for the 2019 Valentine’s Day, and is calling for short story submissions. While the anthology will be made available online, “negotiations are ongoing for sponsorship of the print version which would be sold and royalties given to the contributing authors.”

Vanguard Literary Services “promotes African storytelling through book marketing and distributions, organising writing workshops, mentorship programs, book readings, and literary anthologies.”

In an email to Brittle Paper, Anyanwu explained that the project “is centered, strictly, on the idea of portraying a romantic Africa, an Africa full of healthy people and environment. It is also a way of presenting to the world a new crop of writers who might have been overlooked or not really had the opportunity to publish their stories.”

The company, he explained, does not aim to make profit from the project, and that “VLS assures authors that the stories that stand out would be submitted to literary prizes and awards that require submissions only by the publishers.”
