Swinburne's _Poems and Ballads_ at 150

a conference to be held at St John's College, Cambridge (UK) on the 29-30 July 2016

Call for Papers:

William Michael Rossetti writes: 'If Shelley is "the poet for poets", Swinburne might not unaptly be termed 'the poet for poetic students':

'His writings exercise a great fascination over qualified readers, and excite a very real enthusiasm for them: but these readers are not of that wide, popular, indiscriminate class who come to be moved by the subject matter, the affectingly told story. Mr. Swinburne's readers are of another and a more restricted order... [who prize] the beauty of execution'.

full name / name of organization: 
Rag Queen Periodical

We are preparing to launch a brand new postmodern omnifem publication: Rag Queen Periodical. We are seeking submissions in POETRY AND PROSE.

Écriture féminine. This term is what we had in mind when establishing Rag Queen. We want to feature writing about the embodiment of womanhood, regardless of how that's manifested in your life.

We are interested in deviating from neoliberal, corporate feminism and instead focusing on subverting the erasure of female agency and identity. Nuance, intersectionality, and evocative storytelling are our signposts.

Drawing from varied womynfluences, we set sail on a spring tide into, as Betty Friedan would say, "Woman: The Fourth Dimension."
