Submissions for Yemaya, SULS’ annual journal on gender and sexuality, are now open!

Students interested in being considered for publication must submit an abstract of 150-300 words, and visual and mixed media pieces to supply a sample of previous work. Abstracts should interact either explicitly or implicitly with this years theme; SPECTRUMS. Abstracts should also indicate key themes and ideas of the final submission and an estimated word count not exceeding 3,000 words.

This is a non-autonomous journal so submissions can be from anyone, regards of faculty, gender or sexuality. Submissions can also be anonymous.

Yemaya accepts academic and creative submissions included but not limited to prose, poetry, visual and mixed media. For ideas about previous submissions, you can access previous issues of Yemaya here: http://suls.org.au/publications/yemaya/

Potential topics exploring this year’s theme may include:
- fluidity of gender and sexuality
- coming to terms with non-binary identification
- inclusivity and intersectionality of mainstream feminist and queer spaces.
- centering of cis people within feminism and the queer community
- invisibility of gender fluid and sexually fluid individuals in the queer community and the society more generally

The topics outlined above are merely suggestions, and contributors are encouraged to interpret the theme creatively.

Submissions close on June 11th 2016. To submit an abstract, please email submissions to yemaya@suls.org.au with your preferred name, a potential title for your work. For written pieces, please submit file as either a .doc or .docx, please do not send PDFs or obscure formats. For visual pieces, please submit as an image file.
