Just spreading the word!
I’m pleased to announce a call for submissions for the first Asian Women Blog Carnival as well as suggestions for themes and hosts for possible future carnivals. I hope that there will be enough interest for us to continue this, monthly or bimonthly or quarterly so please do let me know if you are interested in hosting a future Asian Women blog carnival with (or without!) a specific theme in mind. I am new to this and I expect that I will be muddling through so if you have any suggestions or advice, please drop me a line!
This carnival is intended to focus on Asian women. The definition of Asian, within the scope of this carnival, includes people from East Asia, Central Asia, South Asia, North Asia, South-East Asia, Far East, Middle East, Near East and people of Asian descent living in non-Asian countries. The definition of women, within the scope of this carnival, includes transwomen and cisgendered women.
Call for Submissions
For the first edition, which I will be hosting at yennenga thanks to delux_vivens‘s kind offer, there is no specific theme. I would like to highlight the diversity of Asian women and topics regarding identity in Asian majority and Asian minority cultures. Submissions can range from feminism, representation, culture, history, work, activism, beauty, health, sexuality, politics, economics, philosophy, class, education, religion, how we identify and relate to other PoC groups, personal stories etc.
Please feel free to submit your own posts or suggest good posts or links by someone else for this carnival. This carnival is not livejournal specific, please feel free to participate from other journalling sites and blogs. You may submit multiple posts. Submissions from from women and men of colour as well as allies are welcome.
All types of work, such as essays, prose, poems, personal narratives are accepted.
