OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: THE LOOKING GLASS ANTHOLOGY VOLUME II
– Theme: Letters To Our Sons
– Literature & Art BY WOMEN
– DEADLINE CLOSED !!
As the push and pull of the collective global turmoil forces us to reflect and take a hard look at what our societies have amounted to, we turn to art to find solace, meaning, a haven to teach and edify.
In this second volume of The Looking Glass Anthology, we aim to dissect, address, comfort, and ignite conversation around the theme Letters To Our Sons. This volume seeks to have women from around the world share their written and visual art which speaks to the men in our lives. We especially seek to have women “write letters” to the men of this world, the sons of our communities, and speak frankly about any topics deemed important to the current social status (including but not limited to):
– what you want to teach your boy-child
– what you wish society would teach men
– things you want sons to know about the “world out there”
– parental love / friendships / relationships / love of self
Submissions may be in the form of literature and/or any visual art interpretations – published or unpublished.
