Childhood 'Prets' and other premonitions: Aclisa horror series

  • 12:00 pm

ACLiSA is currently soliciting entries for its upcoming blog series titled "Childhood Prets and other Premonitions" on the ghosts that populate South Asian childhoods, folklore, cultural memory and literature. We're looking for the spirits ('prets') of South Asia – the ghosts of childhoods past, if you will. The nightmares inside your heads, the monsters under your beds. Stories that made you scream in fright or silently sent a shiver down your spine or made you pull the blanket close, eyes shut tight. Read the CFP below for more information and send us your contributions (or queries) at aclisa.contact@gmail.com We at ACLiSA can't wait to hear more about your childhood hauntings!
