Manoa Journal Special Issue

The University of Hawaii's Manoa Journal: A Pacific Journal of International Writing is planning a special issue on the Vietnamese Diaspora to be published in summer 2002. Submissions of short fiction, personal essays, memoirs and poetry are being sought. The focus is on excellent literary writing for general readers, rather than essays and specialized articles meant for a scholarly, academic, or specialized audience. The deadline is the end of May 2001. The guest editors are Kevin Bowen and Nguyen Ba Chung at the University of Massachusetts - Boston Joiner Center for the Study of War and Social Consequences.

Send submissions to the guest editors at Healey Library 10-8, 100 Morrissey Blvd., Boston, MA 02125-3393; or to Frank Stewart, Editor, c/o Department of English, University of Hawaii, Honolulu, HI 96822.
