Fabulous Feminist Creative Writing and Artwork
Work with a feminist consciousness that challenges the status quo and says things that are difficult to say may be hard to find a home for, but it's exactly what S/tick is looking for. S/tick provides a place for women and feminists to share their grief, anger, and joy. Please send us your bright and touching art, poetry, and prose with a biting feminist bent. Preference will be given to women and artists in Canada, though if neither of these red dresses fits you, simply ensure you redress something of interest to women!

This is an invitation to submit polemical poems or prose polemics of a socialistic persuasion to be considered for inclusion in what will be The Recusant's new online sister site, Militant Thistles. This site will be continuing in the spirit of The Recusant/Caparison's two anti-austerity anthologies, Emergency Verse and The Robin Hood Book, to which many of you were contributors.
Now I want your contributions again -as well as those from other poets and writers of a sympathetic persuasion.
Themes and memes I'm particularly keen on contributors tackling: poor doors, homeless spikes, anti-squatting laws, bedroom taxes, rise in food banks, red-top and blue-torch anti-welfarism (or 'scroungerology'), and all other forms of Malthusian discriminations currently 'acceptable' in our Tory austerity society.
Please send your contributions in the body of the email, together with a brief biog of yourself, including previous publications and journal appearances. And please put 'Militant Thistles' in the header of your email so I can differentiate it from a Recusant submission.
I plan to go public with the website once we have a sufficient quantity of accepted contributions to make as much impact as possible.

The Sunflower Collective is looking for submissions. We celebrate the personal and the political - which we believe to be one and the same thing - in art.
We would like to mention at the outset that we are not interested in art that does not take risks. We do not mind if you have a degree but we are unlikely to be impressed by it. Nor do we care which journals have published your work before. All we are interested in is something that sings for itself without any props, something that grabs us by our throat and refuses to let go, something that shakes us out of our complacent stupor. Give us something hungry, not bellyful; something beat, if you get our drift.
We express our inability to publish anything that propagates either left-wing or right-wing fascism.
Please send us your poems, prose, artwork and photographs in the body of the mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line mentioning your genre of Submissions. Do read the submission guidelines before sending your work.
1) Poetry: 1-5 poems (Around 5 pages of poetry in total). All forms, including Haikus and Tankas.
2) Experimental and Graphic poems: 1-5
poems (Around 5 pages of poetry in total) including Haibuns and
5) Art work and Photographs/ Photo Essays (5-10 in JPEG format and must not exceed 250K in size )
6) Format: Poetry and prose submissions to be sent in the
body of the mail, unless there are specific formatting requirements
from the author (Needs to be mentioned in the mail). Photos and
scanned artwork in zipped folders. Photo essays in MS Word with
zipped folders of JPEG images separately attached.
