Madwomen in the Attic is seeking featured writers for The Featured Writer Project’s 2022-2023 writing year, which will begin in January 2022.
Open reading period: August – October 31, 2021. We feature women and gender-non-conforming writers and artists.
This is a non-competitive call for submissions, open to writers from any location across the globe; all who wish to be featured writers and who fulfill the submission guidelines will be included in this project and archive. MITA seeks to offer a space in which veteran writers write alongside novice writers as a form of literacy and advocacy to dismantle stigma and support women and queer people. MITA, as an organization, acknowledges equality and celebrates neurodiversity. MITA’s featured writers are not simply writing to showcase their work– they are also writing as a form of advocacy or activism – to self-consciously be part of building an archive and legacy for women and gender-non-conforming people who have been affected by the mental healthcare system, mental illness diagnostic labels, trauma, disability, or emotional distress. More information on the project and its goals is available on our FAQ page.Continue reading “Call for Featured Writers for the 2022 – 2023 Year”
