Updated Call for Submissions: NYC Latina Writer's Group Anthology

Post date: 09 November 2010
Deadline: 15 November 2010

We are SO excited to announce that the NYC Latina Writers Group will be accepting submissions for its first collective publishing venture - New York City Latina Writers Group Anthology: The Latina Feminist Movement.

This project will explore at how contemporary Latina Writers view feminism and its changes. It will analyze what being a feminist means to them. How we are redefining this term? A term that was originally reserved for “white women.”

  • How are women of this generation redefining FEMINISM?
  • How have the views on feminism changed today?
  • What are your ideas of what being a woman/feminist is?
  • How are we defining ourselves?
  • Do you define yourself as a feminist?
  • How do you define feminism?
  • Do you consider yourself a Latina Feminist or does the label make you cringe?
  • Is there such a thing as a Movement and is it still relevant?
  • How does it differ from non-Latina movements?
  • Is there a need for such a movement or are we living in a post-feminist society?

We wish to explore those questions and related ones like the Movement's effect (if any) on gender, sexuality, the arts, media, pop culture, or YOU as a woman.

We are seeking poetry, flash fiction, short stories, and essays from female writers - both unpublished and published. The important part is that it be QUALITY writing. Please send no more than 2 pieces of writing in standard manuscript form (Word doc, 12pt Times New Roman font, double-spaced) via attachment to latinafemsub@gmail.com, and Alicia.anabel@gmail.com. All submissions must be unpublished works - we will not consider previously published pieces.

The deadline is November 15, 2010. We will notify all writers via email at a later date to let them know if their writing was accepted for inclusion into the Anthology. We encourage all our members to submit!
