Femme to Femme is a literary non-fiction, varied anthology seeking to explore femme* identity in the 21st century through various mediums: poetry, essays, stories and narratives, illustration, art and photography.  It was inspired by conversation with young femme* folks of color and Joseph Beam’s 1991 collection of writings edited by Essex Hemphill: Brother to Brother: New Writings by Black Gay Men

Call For Submissions: From Femme* Self-Identified Folks [of Color]

We’re looking for submissions from femme* self-identified folks—including gay/queer, straight, bi, asexual, pansexual, trans*, gender fluid, and others along the gender and sexual orientation spectrums.

We’re specifically seeking stories, letters, narratives, critical analyses and essays, illustrations, and photography capturing the essence and nuanced expressions of black and brown femme* personhood across gendered and embodied difference and lived experiences; How you interpret these is up to you. We welcome first-person narratives (of your experiences, relation to other femme folks [mom, sister, grandma, auntie, girlfriend, partner, etc], photos essays, remembrances, reviews of significant literature or films, anything that you’d like to add to the conversation of what femmeness means to you, what it looks like in the 21st century, and how definitions and expectations of it is changing…or not.

We look forward to adding your voice, your life, your narrative, your brilliance, your beauty, your resilience, your everything to this project. Submissions are being accepted from November 1, 2014 to March 1, 2015.
