Lynda L. Hinkle

MP feminist peer-reviewed biannual e-journal is seeking papers on the
subject of "CHOICE". The word choice has been used as a galvanizing point
concerning abortion, but the concept of the right to choose extends well
beyond the womb. Feminists argue over the kinds of choices we make...the
choice to be a stay at home mother or have a consuming career, the choice to
 marry or not to marry, the choice to be celibate or to be sexually
promiscuous, the choice to agree or disagree with feminist "party lines",
etc. We are seeking academic papers, personal narratives, creative writing,
or journalistic writings that wrestle with the idea of gender and choice in

Call for Submissions: New Writing about Fly Fishing (Collection: updated
deadline 10/21/2005)
 
As fly fishing drifts downstream into the 21st century, anglers are
faced with over-pressured streams and lakes, declining water quality,
and public indifference. In spite of this, we fish. Why? What do we
get out of it? This proposed collection, Fishing the Angles: New
Writing about Fly Fishing, is looking for works that capture the meaning
and magic (or the lack of meaning and magic) of this most literary of
Outdoor Sports. Though works may well veer off into other areas, fishing
or nature should at least be more than tangential to the story. In
