The Anthology "Roda Mundo, Roda-Gigante"

The Anthology "Roda Mundo, Roda-Gigante" has already 25 confirmed participants.

Launched little before Christmas, the project "Roda Mundo, Roda-Gigante – International Anthology" has already achieved 25 authors from Brazil and abroad. The responsible for the book publishing, the editor Douglas Lara, is still receiving and selecting submission papers from future participants of this anthology, which will have around 400 pages. In a thorough-paced preparation, the editor confirms the launching of the book for the coming July.

The edition will be carried out in a cooperative system, where each author supports partially the expenses of the printing production and press-releases. This system has proved to be successful in every project coordinated by Douglas Lara, such as, ¨Onze autores da Web¨ (Ottoni, 2003), ¨Roda Mundo, Roda-Gigante – International Anthology 2004 (Ottony, 2004) and VMD International Anthology (Ottony, January 13th, 2005 at Livraria Cultura, in São Paulo.

'The cooperative method has always good results because, besides coping with the publishing problems, it strengthens the cooperative on the publishing of such work in different regions of Brazil and abroad', observes Douglas Lara. Besides attracting the interest of writers of all ages – some quite experienced, with several works published, of those who are looking for their first publication – the anthologies organized by Lara have been mentioned in the national press as well as publishing portals in countries like Spain and England.
