Calls For Submission Vol.I Sex Positivity

Sexual Trauma is linked to PTSD and many other disruptive life conditions. People encounter it and deal with it in a multitude of ways. We are looking for deeply thought out personally transformative experiences that involve sexual trauma centrally or peripherally. 

Whether a childhood event or an adult experience grounds the libidinal narrative of the essay, the text should confront old beliefs, values and culturally accepted ways of talking about, dealing with, (and not dealing with) the subject of violence and violation.  Contexts of libidinal fields of being include but are not limited to: social, institutional, familial and personal.

This call for sexual trauma essays is inclusive of fiction as well as non-fiction; a dramatic structure, an academic treatise, new journalism, and hybrid literary modes including *cybertext will be considered.

Essay length: 250-2500 words, and *indeterminate digital experiences, such as hypermedia, that facilitate discourse about the topic of sexual trauma

Some prompts:

Michel Foucault; History of Sexuality, Vol. I, Peter Levine; Waking the Tiger, Maya Angelou; I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Powers of Desire: The Politics of Sexuality; Snitow, Ann, et al. 

“A Body we know is designed to die will never be a simple plaything.” - Jane Rule
