Call for Publications
August 27, 2020 to September 30, 2020
Subject Fields: 
Fine Arts, Humanities, Race / Ethnic Studies, Social Sciences, Women's & Gender History / Studies


We welcome submissions for a unique anthology on non-conformism that will be published by DIO Press.

Through this anthology, we the co-editors—Epifania Amoo-Adare and I —intend to share diverse accounts of non-conformism, illustrating what is so hard—but also so very good—about being a rebel wom!n.  

More specifically, we seek to highlight the lives, experiences, energies and spirits of non-conformists, who also just happen to be wom!n; i.e., women, wemoon, womyn, and womxn—however self-identified.

We intend to use a range of media and literary forms (e.g. prosetry, poetry, photography, other artwork etc). to answer the fundamental question:

What does it mean to be a rebel/non-conforming wom!n in today’s world?


To this end, we would love to receive offerings from you that tell us your own story, or that of other rebel wom!n. Abstracts should be emailed to by 30 September 2020.

To access the complete call (also for re-circulation): 


We welcome contributions from anyone irrespective of gender identification.  Thank you!
