CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR BLACK WOMEN WRITERS:
I am running two series for the feminist publication, Weird Sister. Info below. Send questions/submissions to email@example.com with the title of the series in the subject line!
"Best Literary Sex":
For this series I am looking for pieces of approx 300-500 words that describe your fave sexy scenes from poetry or literature. I'd love to see pieces that are narrative or express some sort of personal connection to the text. I am especially interested in pieces that incorporate sex scenes that challenge white heteronornmative visions of desire and sexual pleasure in literature and pop culture.
"How to Survive as A Black or Brown Girl":
Broadly, writing for this series should speak to some of the larger themes that black/brown women face as we move through multiple spaces as artists, writers, and consumers of literature/pop culture and how to survive/thrive in them. I'm looking for work that is thoughtful, poignant, and offers readers a window into seeing both themselves and the world.
My operation ONLI STUDIOS is looking for a few brilliant writers who can take direction.
This is fantastic. The growing Black Age of Comics movement offers serious opportunities for talented, reliable professional writers and editors.
We have been hosting annual events and publishing indie products since 1993. Keep in mind Comic books, graphic novels and event animation are from of literature.

Fill in that space were assumptions takes place
So I can move with ease
And erase the vision that never existed
See our minds assume the worst
All we can do is trust that our affection
Is what you love the most
i've been deranged for far too long
coz when the peace is done
then the faeces start.
i wake and i bake
when the sun is strong,
making babies on the shit i started.
look at the shit i started.
there's a spider in my house,
coz when you're all alone
there's always something.
Gimme my, gimme my green, gimme my gold and green :)
new music: bólátitó - gold & green
Waking up with a story coming through me that needs to be told. As I close my eyes to rest a little more, the words and melody heard in my head persists, and so I pick up pen and paper, faithful to this energy and I write.
