The UP Press is interested in a collection of stories on the supernatural for the UP Jubilee Student Edition. These stories should be short and should have a strong Filipino element. They may be scary, funny, romantic, or action-packed, as long as they deal with the supernatural and are told in the mode of popular literature, i.e., light. We are also open to stories told in comics form (as long as they are done in black and white).

Please submit your contributions to:

Supernatural Story Collection editors
University of the Philippines Press
UP Press Bldg
E de los Santos St., UP Campus
Diliman, Quezon City

Or email Indicate `supernatural story' in the subject.

Deadline for submission is on February 20, 2004. Manuscripts should be no more than 10 pages long, double-spaced, on short bond paper. Please submit three (3) copies in a brown envelope and include your contact information.

The editors will select 10-20 stories for a total book-length of around 100 pages. The chosen authors will be given a copy of the book and will be included in promotional material during the UP Press Book Caravan and other marketing activities involving the Student Edition line.

Previously published material will be considered. Please make sure to include bibliographic information regarding the initial publication.
