Let the Games Begin: World Cup Writers

The world-41953_640World Cup is starting tomorrow and here at NYWC we thought it would be a great way to showcase some voices that we don’t hear enough of: international writers. We often overlook authors who do not write in English or who are not from Great Britain or the United States. To celebrate this moment of friendly competition between countries we have created our own World Cup bracket. Instead of teams from different countries we have chosen to highlight authors who are activists or whose work deals with social justice issues. We hope that you will participate with us by filling out our World Cup Writers Bracket and letting us know who some of your favorite international authors are. You can tweet your picks to @NYWriters or take a picture and share it with us on Instagram. If you share your bracket with us you will be entered to win some NYWC Press 2014 publications and some of our favorite anthologies!
