Women Writers: A Zine is seeking previously unpublished essays and original
works of fiction, poetry, and hypertext for a special issue on "Digital Eves:
Transgression/ Transcendence in Cyberspace," to be published online in Winter
2006. Women Writers: A Zine is a digital, peer-reviewed publication that
features creative work by women writers as well as scholarship on any aspect
of women's writing, women's studies, and feminist scholarship. See the
journal's Website at www.womenwriters.net for more information.
"Digital Eves" will explore cyberspace as a transgressive arena in which, like
the biblical Eve, individuals seek to transcend their ontological limits, be
they physical, temporal, intellectual, or creative.
Approaches could include but are not limited to treatments of virtual reality,
online identity and presence, feminist theories of gender and the body,
speculative/science fiction, Artificial Intelligence, human consciousness,
cyberspace as contemporary carnival, and/or the search for immortality.
Creative and interdisciplinary pieces are welcome and encouraged.
