We are currently inviting submissions for our fall 2017 pilot that critique the cultural, social, political and historical exercises of power and privilege, and the preservation of that power and privilege.
We have three critical spaces. For Creative Voices, we like stories by the everyday artist, writer, and educator that assert counter-cultural identities and vernaculars—literary counter-narratives exploring self in dominant and/or racialized spaces. For Learning Voices, we like critical essays examining craft, process, and the practice and teaching of them—thoughtful reflections on language and power and the rights to own one’s language. And for Disorderly Voices, we like blogs commenting on current issues of culture, politics, and everything in between—whose narrative constructions do we privilege and why? We like all forms—video, audio, oral history, photographic, mixed media—and we also like the regular, written kind. We like all genres—nonfiction, fiction, poetry, spoken word, hip hop—but please, no academic five-paragraphs. And we like all voices—dramatic, humorous, thoughtful, witty, smart—because let’s be real, no one likes to peruse work by robots.
