updated:

QMW Project
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 15, 2020

For a lot of complicated reasons, the main queer Mormon stories people hear are those of cis gay men. We would like to make available the other stories.

We are seeking narrative essays from queer Mormons, no longer practicing Mormons, and Mormon-adjacent people. We are interested in the stories of queer women, trans and nonbinary people, intersex people, asexual people, and queer polyamorous women. 

 

The four subject areas we are looking at are the following:

1) Identity

2) Relationships

3) Shame/Suicide/The Closet

We are delighted to announce the call for papers for the third issue of our Edinburgh University Press journal Crime Fiction Studies. Arising out of Bath Spa University’s very successful Captivating Criminality conferences, organised by Fiona Peters, and the establishment of the International Crime Fiction Association in 2016, this journal is the first British university press journal focussing on the broad field of crime fiction studies. Crime Fiction Studies publishes two issues per year both in print and online.

Captivating Criminality 7 Conference: Crime Fiction: Memory, History and Revaluation July 2-4 Newton Park Campus, Bath Spa University

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 15, 2020

The International Crime Fiction Association is delighted to announce its seventh conference, which will be held in Bath, UK. Building upon and developing ideas and themes from the previous six successful conferences, Memory, History and Revaluation, will examine the ways in which Crime Fiction as a genre necessarily incorporates elements of the past – the past in general and its own past, both in terms of its own generic developments and also in respect of true crime and historical events. The CfP will thus offer opportunities for delegates to engage in discussions that are relevant to both past and present crime writing.

Extended Deadline - Ghost Stories Call for Submissions

 

Tell me a story. A simple request made by children across the world every night and one we seek to fulfil even as adults. But… it is the stories that excite, that make our hearts beat faster, and the hairs on our necks stand on end that bewitch us most. It is these stories we want to hear. Spectral Visions Press (University of Sunderland) are now accepting submissions for a short story collection, Spectral Visions: Ghost Stories. Due to the fantastic response, we've extended the deadline in hopes of a bumper collection or even a separate poetry collection.

Cinematic Representations of Women in Modern Celebrity Culture (1900-1950) (edited collection)

updated:

Leticia Perez Alonso
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 7, 2020

We invite proposals for contributions to an edited collection on cinematic representations of women in works of art, poetry, fiction, theater and criticism of the avant-garde. The popularization of film stars such as Blanche Sweet, Mae Marsh, Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo and Brigitte Helm shaped the cultural imaginary of modernity to such an extent that they influenced the creative activity of artists and writers in the years 1900-1950. Questions centering on feminine stardom will set the background of this collection of essays examining the intersections of vanguardism with popular culture, publicity and performance. How are images of femininity circulated and consumed by the spectators of the cinematic medium?
