VISIBLE: A FEMMETHOLOGY - Call for Submissions

VISIBLE: A FEMMETHOLOGY an anthology of writing on queer femme identity.
Editor: Maria Angeline Publisher: Merge Press. Anticipated Publication Date: Spring 2008

"Femmes are still invisible. Society can't see past our heels to hear our stories, so we must continue to build platforms for our voices. Visible: A Femmethology, a forthcoming anthology about the power and complications in presenting femme as a gender and breaking the traditional meaning of feminine, aims to showcase blunt, personal essays exploring what "femme" means to those who claim it as an identity.Give me your experiences, your inner dialogues, your theories and practices. Please do not send fiction, poetry, or erotica. I will not consider any material to which you do not fully own the rights. I am seeking prose that is thoughtful, analytical, raw, challenging, exploratory, and uniquely you."

CONDITIONS: Essays must be previously unpublished, 1500-6000 words in length, and typed double-spaced. You may submit more than one essay. PRIZE: Contributing writers will share 25% of the net profits of Visible: A Femmethology and receive a free copy of the anthology. ENTRY FEE: None DEADLINE: March 15, 2007
