CFP: [African-American] Book Reviews Women and Voodoo 08/08/08 deadline
Women Writers is doing a special issue and needs your help. We're short
on book reviews.
If anyone out there has read a book (fiction, poetry, nonfiction) that
they loved or hated that had some aspect of
Voodoo/Hoodoo/Conjure/Rootwork/ in it and would like to publish a short
to medium length book review of that text on our special issue of Voodoo
& Women of Womenwriters.net, please send it my way within the next week.
For samples of previous book reviews, check here:
Authors such as Zora Neale Hurston, Nalo Hopkinson, Emma Bull, Gloria
Naylor, Maryse Conde, Maya Deren, Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, Toni Cade
Bambara, Emma Bull, *etc, etc,* would qualify. Tell us about books we
don't know about! Reviews of the New Orleans Voodoo Tarot would be cool,
too. Reviews (personal essay style) of your visit to Marie Leveau's
house of voodoo in New Orleans would be awesome....
Almost anything goes. As long as the author of the book you're reviewing
is a woman, and you keep it under 1000 words, we'll be super happy. :)
The review can be previously published if the place it was published in
before does not object to dual publication. Even website reviews are
open to negotiation.... any website dealing with voodoo & women can
possibly be reviewed.
If you want to broaden your definition and review anything with women's
MAGIC or witchcraft of any sort, you can, but please ask me for approval
We're looking for things that can be ready to go by August 8, 2008.
Send your submissions via an email attachment (ms word or word perfect
preferably) to me ASAP.
