Call for Submissions: as Others literary magazine

Call for submissions: as Others literary magazine 

We are interested in exploring the "Otherness" many of us feel in regards to a part of our identity outside the dominant culture. The name of our blog is based on Simone De Beauvoir’s description of Otherness in The Second Sex.
“The category of Other is as original as consciousness itself. The duality between Self and Other can be found in the most primitive societies, in the most ancient mythologies; the division did not always fall into the category of the division of the sexes ..No group ever defines itself as One without immediately setting up the Other opposite itself.” - Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex

We are looking for submissions about:

1) Your experience as an Other, or
2) A well formulated critique of an organization/media's portrayal or treatment of an Other 

Prose: Times New Roman, 12 pt font, single-spaced, 800-2000 words
Poetry: Times New Roman, 12 pt font, single-spaced, max 50 lines
Visual Art (drawings, paintings, photos, comics): jpeg, max 1000 x 1000 pixels; comics maximum six panels
*writing accompanying images may be up to 500 words

We accept simultaneous submissions and our response time is usually 2-6 weeks. Please include a 3-4 sentence biographical statement to be published alongside your submission (if applicable, add your personal website or twitter handle so our readers can continue to follow you). Email all documents to:
