AWP Nonfiction Flash Mob!
February 27, 2012 § 2 Comments
FRIDAY March 2nd, anytime between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. VIDA Booth, #308, at the AWP Bookfair
The feminist nonfiction sirens have sounded! Come gather, to meet each other and break it down with guest editors of Brevity’s Ceiling or Sky project. We’ll chat about the coming issue and ask what you think about the place of women in creative nonfiction today. Anyone who loves women and loves CNF is welcome!
Ceiling or Sky: Female Nonfictions after the VIDA Count is a forthcoming special issue of BREVITY, a journal of concise creative nonfiction, guest-edited by Susanne Antonetta, Barrie Jean Borich, and Joy Castro. We seek vibrant, knock-out nonfiction of 750-words or less by women, including transgendered women, that pushes back against and/or illuminates the silences, gaps, and biases revealed by the VIDA count. Submissions are open until May 1, 2012 at: http://brevity.submishmash.com/submit.
