Call for pieces: Living While Feminist
03 May 2019
Deadline: 20 June 2019
No matter what body you’re living in, if you identify as feminist, a new volume of writing is looking for your voice and your story!
This collection seeks essays, poems, and memoir pieces on the idea of Living While Feminist for a collection to be published in 2020.
So much of our experience of living is filtered through our bodies. Norms, myths, and cultural standards shape the way that we and the world experience our bodies, how they look and feel and move, our experience of ourselves as gendered, and our identities. Our bodies can be a way to conform, or to struggle and resist.
Feminism can help us learn and unlearn things about our bodies, can help us experience a sense of comfort and self-control, and most importantly, feminism is for everybody.
Pieces must be:
- Maximum 5000 words in length. Short pieces are welcome too.
- Written in English
- Typed, double spaced
Depending on the volume of submissions it may not be possible to publish all pieces. Proceeds of the collection will be donated to a South African NGO.
Submissions must be sent by 20 June 2019, to LivingWhileFeministSA@gmail.com
