Apart from adda being @cwwriters online gathering of stories, it provides  a place where writers and readers can talk to each other across global and geopolitical divides.

They are looking to commission a number of stories in the coming months. Each commission will be given detailed editorial attention to ensure a level of quality in the stories published and also to offer the writers – especially those less experienced – a process to develop their writing.

Send your submissions to commonwealthwriters@gmail.com by 11:59pm (any time zone) on 29 August with the subject heading ‘adda submission’.

You should hear from them or yes by October 7, 2016.

Check out some of their stories here and submission guidelines here
