Prairie Schooner Call for Blog Posts
January 2, 2015 § 1 Comment
Our venerable and well-regarded colleague Prairie Schooner‘s Winter 2014 issue features a poetry portfolio of world writers on Women and the Global Imagination, guest-edited by Alicia Ostriker. They’d love to give this idea an even bigger and more multifaceted conversation, and they’re seeking guest bloggers to write on that theme.
What are we looking for? Here’s a few ideas to get you started: What would a year of reading only women writers look like? Female characters in literature and cinema: which ones are likable and which ones aren’t, and why? Which journals are publishing female voices? How do gender binaries exclude certain voices? Is promoting “women writers” enough, or, how can greater inclusivity be achieved? Who are some great female editors working today? What is the “Global Imagination,” and how does femininity relate? How can we use advances in technology to hear voices from all over the world? In what ways can the Global Imagination be transformed?
Whether you call it an essay, an article, or something in between, we’d love to read your thoughts and ideas. Wrap them up in 500 to 2,000 words of well-considered wit, pith, and syntax, and submit by January 15.
Does one of these questions (or another idea entirely) spark your pen? Head on over to Submittable for the full details.
