Silent Cry by John Paul Kayuni

Rivulets of tears
descended on my cheeks
As mourned I your death
so abrupt
Washing down did they,
the dust chips
That I gathered as I crept
Uphill only to find you

Glued in my mind
Memories still fresh
Of that but, one sad day

Selected Works for Anthology

Below are the titles with corresponding authors of works selected for the yet-to-be-titled Youthful Malawian Writers anthology. However, this is not the final list. Some works maybe added to or removed from the list as the editors of the anthology feel it necessary at any stage of the editing process.

Authors of the works listed will be contacted in due time to be involved in the editing of their respective works. As you will note, some works are listed as ‘by [not yet known]’. This is so because others when submitting did not list the author, and this became a problem especially when we received several works contained in one mail from clubs and institutions. Please if your work is listed as thus, do send a copy of the work, now with the necessary details to rogermunthali(at)gmail(dot)com with CC to youthmalwriters(at)gmail(dot)com) and kingsleykapito(at)gmail(dot)com). Do this before 30th April 2013, after which Y.M.W will have no option but to remove your work from the list for consideration. Do also contact through the given email addresses if your work or your name is NOT spelt correctly.
If at all during the editing process some works are removed from the list, the works will be published/posted on this blog, of course we will have contacted the authors for permission.
