Seems to me with all this talk of grabbing that it’s a good morning to ask women and non-binary folks of all ages and backgrounds to send Ariel Gordon, Rosanna Deerchild, and me their poetry, fiction, and personal essays about menstruation, its political force, its defiance, its cessation, its unpredictability, and everything else about living in the world as a menstruating person.
I want to send special encouragement for submissions of work from writers under the age of thirty, from writers with First Nations heritage, from writers of colour, from writers living with disabilities, from gender-queer and gender-fluid writers. When the patriarchy rears its ugly head and flaps its garrulous lips, we are stronger together. The deadline is Oct. 15th. Need more time? Email us.
