Welcome to SENTINEL LITERARY QUARTERLY

Vol.4. No.1. October - December 2010

 


Editorial

I-links

 

As a new editor of an online publication, you do not inherit an office with furniture but an archive of past issues and an email address clogged with correspondence from writers and those who think they can write.

 

Since becoming Editor of Sentinel Literary Quarterly, I have had to go through hundreds of emails. What is only disheartening is the lack of polish and commitment sometimes. You can see the story is there but the literary execution is poor and as much as I may like the idea of the story or poem in most cases I end up declining the majority of submissions.

 

The mission of our publication is to celebrate works of ‘international and contemporary’ relevance. The choices I made for this issue are deliberately eclectic and the scope is broad. It is not assembled with any particular logic in mind, the subjects range from Shakespeare’s adaptation in South Africa to childhood memories of growing up in Israel during the partition years to reflections of writing in English in Cameroon.


We welcome contributors for our next issue scheduled for January 2011.
