Diaspora Dialogues mentorship program, Ropewalk postcard fiction contest, Broken City wants music-related pieces & The Antiginosh Review pays for beautiful literature

Tok, Diaspora Dialogue's literary journal
Diaspora Dialogues Open Call for Submissions: Diaspora Dialogues supports the creation and presentation of new fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and drama that reflect the complexity of the Toronto area, as seen through the eyes of its richly diverse writers. We use art and ideas to explore questions of our connected humanity, and our programs and events help encourage the creation of a literature – and audience – that is vibrant and inclusive.

Diaspora Dialogues invites submissions to its bi-annual mentoring program from emerging GTA writers of short stories, poetry and creative nonfiction.

Through an adjudicated process, writers will be chosen and each assigned (free of charge) to an established writer in a mentoring capacity.

Diaspora Dialogues is committed to supporting a literature of Toronto that is as diverse as the city itself. The setting of the works must be, at least in part, the greater Toronto region. First and second-generation immigrants and First Nations writers are especially welcome.     
Deadline: November 22, 2013.  For complete submission guidelines and application form, see here.
