CFP - "Rebel" Issue of Peril (Deadline: 30 April 2007)

=== REMINDER ===

"Hey! What are you rebelling against?"

"What've you got?"

We at Peril, an online Asian Australian journal, are seeking your submissions for our 3rd issue that's themed as "Rebel."

Feel free to challenge the theme. Oh, and feel free to interpret 'rebel' as noun, verb or both. Been resisting authority lately? Fending off, or embracing, the Model Minority tag? This issue of Peril focuses on the ways we might buck expectations. What does 'rebellious' or 'rebellion' really mean? What does it mean to be 'anti-'? Are there anti-rebels? What are you rebelling against? With or without a cause, show us what you can rally.

You don't have to be Asian Australian to be a Peril contributor, and your submission might not have to reference Asian (Australian) identity either. It's a tricky thing, identity. Surprise us. Make us want to publish you.

We accept:
  • Articles, essays, short stories, poetry, diary entries, zine excerpts, reviews, letters and any other type of text that you want to try out.
  • (Audio)/Visual art that can be accommodated on our website (please email us for further queries). For example: comics, mp3s, photography, line drawings, flash animations, short-films, etc.
  • Links to your online work (e.g. relevant blog posts).
  • Anything else you can think of, as long as it's suited to the practicalities of the online medium.
Word limit: We would prefer a maximum of 1000 words per submission. Longer submissions may be serialised over two or more editions.

Publication date: This issue of Peril will be launched in June 2007 to coincide with AAI 2: The 2nd Asian Australian Identities Conference (28-30 June 2007; Melbourne, Vic).

Deadline: We require your submission on or before 30 April 2007.

Format: We prefer plain text submissions by email - peril@asianaustralian.org

Payment: As a start up journal, unfortunately we cannot offer you payment. However, we are working hard to ensure that your work can reach a wide audience and be published alongside pieces from other outstanding writers.

Copyright: All copyright remains with the creator. We do not insist on being the first to publish your work so feel free to submit already published material or stuff submitted elsewhere.
