There is no theme; the work only needs to reflect Jamaica, the Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago or Barbados in some manner.
This is adult fiction (in the sense that it is not “children’s fiction”).
The work must be written in an English (i.e., not translated from another language) and must be written by a resident of Jamaica, the Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago or Barbados (This is not a collection of diaspora writing.).
The story must be “new” in the sense that it is “unpublished” and has not been published in any form.
