I may have mentioned this before, but it’s worth mentioning again! An upcoming anthology, 21 Peaceful Genders, is looking for awesome submissions. The details:
GUIDELINES: Are you an individual who identifies as transgender, intersex, innersex, genderqueer, nonconforming, or gender-gifted? Are you a health professional working with patients who identify as transgendered, intersex, genderqueer, nonconforming or gender-gifted? Do you conceptualize gender as an experience more than an assignment? 21 Peaceful Genders – No Boxes, No Bars, No Apologies will be an anthology that paints a picture of gender as a place of possibility. We welcome original creative non-fiction, fiction, poetry and b/w photography. If you identify as trans*, and this theme resonates with you, what approaches have contributed to a more affirming health care experience for you? If you are a health care professional, please weave the creative insights that have informed your most-helpful approaches into your submission. Our intention is to help bridge the gap of misunderstanding between genderqueer individuals and the healthcare system at large. Submit to [email protected] Suggest 2000 word max. Deadline Dec 31, 2013. First Prize pays $500, plus two honorable mentions, paid in copies. Feel free to circulate/post this call.
Well, gang, get on it!
