Feral Feminisms, a new, independent, inter-media, peer-reviewed, open-access online journal, invites submissions for a special issue entitled "Queer Feminine Affinities" guest edited by Alexa Athelstan and Vikki Chalklin. Submitted contributions may include full-length academic essays (5000 - 7000 words), shorter creative pieces, cultural commentaries, or personal narratives (500 - 2500 words), poetry, photo essays, short films and videos (uploaded to Vimeo), visual and sound art (jpeg Max 1MB), or a combination of these. Please direct inquiries and submissions to Guest Editors Alexa Athelstan and Vikki Chalklin firstname.lastname@example.org. Queer Feminine Affinities aspires to become the first collaborative project that collects a diverse variety of written and visual materials by, on and for femme, queer, alternative and subversive feminine voices and communities emerging from across the UK, Europe, North America and beyond.
We were delighted to receive an overwhelming and exciting response to our initial call for submissions to Queer Feminine Affinities. However, we are still seeking additional submissions on a number of as yet underrepresented topics. With this extended call we specifically welcome work that engages with the following themes. Thus, topics of interest and questions may include, but are not limited to:
Queer, Trans* and non-binary fe(me)ininities
(Non-)Geographically Located Femininities
