  • Textual-Sexual-Spiritual: Art and Ritual as Queer Becoming
  • Deadline info Deadline: December 15, 2022
  • Genre Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Art, Photography, Cross-genre, Interviews
  • Type Magazine

This issue of Rejoinder addresses the relationships between text/artwork, sexuality, and spirituality to navigate tensions of being and becoming. The idea of ‘‘queer becoming” involves not only never “straightening up” and “flying right,” but also the possibility of “one’s becoming something other than queer” (McCallum and Tuhkanen 2011, 10-11). How do our approaches to “becoming” allow us to cultivate community, extend work, shape praxis, guide pedagogy, and beyond? We invite interdisciplinary contributions (nonfiction/fiction, poetry, and artwork) that use a queer feminist lens. More information and submission information at: irw.rutgers.edu/about-rejoinder/42-web-journals/593-call-for-submissions-august-2022. Guest Editor: Dr. Jocelyn E. Marshall (Emerson College).

Applause Issue 33: The (In)Evitable Ending. Evitable; adj. That admits of being avoided; avoidable. Applause is looking for the most interesting angles we can find as your work approaches its “evitable ending.” We begin knowing there’s an end, but the ending doesn’t have to be inevitable to satisfy the reader. Sometimes the end of “what actually happened” is really the poem, story, or essay’s beginning. Sometimes the piece decides the end. We’re looking for original poems, stories, essays, and visual art that showcases what happens when we avoid the avoidable. Imagine the ending. Avoid it. Send it to us. applause.submittable.com/submit
