CFP: SLANT – Deadline 26 April 2019

Call for Papers


Deadline: 26 April 2019

This is a call for theoretically informed, critically engaged poetic contributions for an anthology of feminist feeling, curated by Seam Editions and guest edited by Kim Lockwood. In this political climate, it is vital that we re-examine the metaphors, allusions, and avoidances that are used to construct or deny female experiences. We’re interested in work that not only reclaims or reworks traditional allegories of woman-as-muse or woman-as-myth, but pulls these metaphorical renderings apart at the seams, and refuses to let female embodiment, female feeling, and female actuality be made more palatable or less confrontational. Closing 26 April 2019 – read more, or get in touch
