Chroma, a UK-based literary and arts journal that publishes and promotes the work of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender writers and artists, is currently looking for stories and poems to include in our Translation Issue, due out towards the end of 2007. The Translation Issue will feature a diverse selection of writers from around the world working in languages other than English. Our aim is to make the work of LGBTQ writers, and writers of all sexualities attending positively to queer experiences, ideas, and politics, available to a wider audience.

We would like Chroma’s Translation Issue to bring together some of the voices of an international community of LGBTQ writers, and make it the basis for an International Queer Literary Festival we will hold in London in 2008.

I am writing to ask for your help in finding emerging and established writers in languages other than English who are either lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered. Chroma publishes poetry, fiction, memoir, and creative non-fiction. We welcome both short stories and novel extracts.

As a new literary journal, we only have a limited budget, which enables us to pay a small fee to all our contributors, as well as to the translators. We have a list of translators, but would be grateful for details of any others you might know.

The deadline is 15th November 2006. We accept prose pieces of 2500-5000 words and poems of up to 50 lines.

Please feel free to post this message on your site, at your offices, on your listserv, and to send to any other organisations or contacts.

Please visit our website – www.chromajournal.co.uk – to learn more about Chroma, and do let us know if you’d like us to send you a downloadable sample copy via email. English language queer, trans & Two-Spirit writers, please check the site for details of other issues accepting submissions!

With best wishes.

Conference on Cultural Rhetorics
May 16-18, 2007
East Lansing, MI
Michigan State University

Call for Papers, Performances, and Exhibits

What are cultural rhetorics? Who writes, performs, displays, digitizes, crafts, and creates these rhetorics? What do they look like? How do specific cultural rhetorics differ from, overlap with, and/or engage in dialogue with Cultural, Ethnic, African American, Asian American, American Indian, Arab and Middle Eastern American, Chicano/a, Latina/o, Indigenous, Disability, Queer/LGBT, Performance, and Working-Class Studies? What are their relationships to Rhetoric Studies, Theory, and Pedagogy? Composition Studies? American Studies? Literary Studies? Digital, Visual, and Material Rhetorics? Scientific, technical, and professional communication studies? Are there pedagogies of cultural rhetorics? Methodologies? Theories? Performances? Materialities?

We welcome papers, performances, and exhibits that articulate, engage with, provoke, analyze, theorize, and practice cultural rhetorics. We are particularly interested in scholars/artists/performers/writers/knowledge workers that engage rhetorics that are too often marginalized, tokenized, silenced, and ignored. We welcome work that happens at the intersection of various disciplines and fields in the humanities and invite scholars, artists, and writers to join us at these intellectual and creative crossroads. Please join us in creating a space of radical interdisciplinarity in which to explore rhetoric as a distinctive constellation of methods, methodologies, and pedagogies for the study of culture and to think through how the frame of “culture” expands our understanding of rhetoric and the responsibility for rhetoric to be ethical in its engagement with culture.

While we are very interested in proposals for individual papers and panel presentations that address these questions and/or further scholarship in these areas, we especially encourage art, craft, multimedia, or imaginative resentations/demonstrations/installations that provoke other methods of intellectual engagement as well.

Proposals of 300-500 words may be submitted via US Mail or online. For the proposal form and submission process please visit our website: http://rhetoric.msu.edu/cultrhet. Please direct any questions to Malea Powell at powell37@msu.edu.

The deadline for submissions is January 1, 2007.

Call for Participants: “On the Wings of Wadaduga: Cherokee Two-Spirit Lives.”

Cherokee Two-Spirit/Queer activist, poet, and scholar Qwo-Li Driskill is looking for other Cherokee Two-Spirits to tell their stories as part of a research project. “On the Wings of Wadaduga” is an effort to bring the stories and histories of Cherokee Two-Spirit, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer-identified people to other Cherokees and to the broader public. This research has a goal of publishing the collected stories and creating a public performance of and based on these stories. These stories may also be used in scholarly articles and publications.

Background:

Wadaduga (Dragonfly) is an animal that enters only peripherally in recorded Cherokee stories. Wadaduga is a species currently in grave danger of extinction. Like Wadaduga, Cherokee Two-Spirits are currently being attacked and erased and our histories ignored. While contemporary writing and activism has demonstrated the roles of Two-Spirit people within various Native traditions and histories, discussions of Cherokee Two-Spirits have largely been left out of discussion. This project aims to bring our experiences to the center for both our present for future generations.

Who Can Participate?

This research is for all Cherokees who also identify as Two-Spirit, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersexed, Genderqueer, or Queer. For the purposes of this project, “Cherokee” people will be defined as those who meet at least two of the following criteria: 1.) Have Cherokee ancestry. 2.) Are enrolled members of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, the United Keetoowah Band, or the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians 3.) Are involved with Cherokee community and are recognized by other Cherokees as being Cherokee.

About Qwo-Li:

Qwo-Li Driskill is a Cherokee Two-Spirit writer and activist also of African, Irish, Lenape, Lumbee, and Osage ascent, and the author of Walking with Ghosts: Poems. Hir work appears in numerous publications including The Crab Orchard Review, SAIL: Studies in American Indian Literatures, Many Mountains Moving, and in the anthologies Nurturing Native Languages, Revolutionary Voices: A Multicultural Queer Youth Anthology, and Speak to Me Words: Essays on Contemporary American Indian Poetry. S/he performs poetry and conducts workshops throughout US and Canadian occupied Turtle Island. S/he is currently living in Three Fires (Ojibwe, Odawa, Potawatomi) and Huron territories while pursuing a PhD in Rhetoric and Writing at Michigan State University. Qwo-Li’s website is http://www.dragonflyrising.com.

Call for submissions: MENTAL HEALTH INSIDE/OUT

For issue seven of Poetry Is Dead, we have guest editors Nikki Reimer and Kevin Spenst working on a collaborative issue. Each editor has separate submission calls to respond to.

INSIDE: That artists and writers—particularly poets—are more prone than non-artists/writers/poets to ride the crazy train may be a cliché. Mental illness is serious, however, and dismissing the link between creativity and mental illness as mere cliché only denies the very real suffering that many creative individuals endure.

OUTSIDE: Madness, Psychosis, Dementia Praecox, and Schizophrenia are daunting terms that have been used to label certain types of behavior.

Submission deadline is January 31st, 2013. To submit, please email your submissions to issue7@poetryisdead.ca with the subject line of "INSIDE" or "OUTSIDE." Submitters must submit to one or the other (but can submit to both separately). For queries and questions about the issue email editor@poetryisdead.ca.

More about Poetry is Dead, and more in-depth descriptions of the separate submission calls here: http://www.poetryisdead.ca/blog/call-submissions-mental-health-insideout.html
