A message just received from Perlita Harris for the British Association of Adoption and Fostering.
We are editing an anthology of writing and poetry by adopted adults who were adopted in England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland including adoptees born in another country (e.g. Korea) and raised by their adoptive family in the UK. This collection will be published in late 2010 by the British Association of Adoption and Fostering. We welcome writing and poetry from Korean adopted adults. Might you be interested in contributing to this anthology and/or know any UK Korean adopted adults who might be? Please email for the full Call For Submissions: Perlita dot Harris2 at btinternet dot com
