Women! We invite you to contribute your art and writing for WeMoon: Radical Balance. All writing should be on 8.5 X 11 inch letter sized paper; do not send originals. Eight pieces of writing maximum. Prose is limited to 350 words; poetry should not exceed 35 lines (12 words/line). Do not send manuscripts, chapbooks or work in any bound form.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

1) Each piece of art and writing is circulated at Weaving Circles where dozens of women give preliminary feedback. Therefore, PLEASE: a) Send one piece of art or writing per page and b) Please label the back of each piece with the title, copyright symbol, your name and the credit year.

2) Artwork: Please send reproductions of your work on plain paper, one image per page (no originals*, none larger than letter-size paper, no more than 16 pieces). To reduce our ecological footprint, PLEASE do not send glossy prints, plastic sheet protectors, CDs, or other unrecycleable items. We will contact you for high resolution images if your work is chosen.

3) Photos: Do not submit photos without including written permission from every identifiable person in the photo.

4) Brief writings: All writing should be on letter-sized paper; do not send originals. Do not send more than 8 pieces of writing. Limit prose to 350 words (12 words/line); poetry should not exceed 35 lines (12 words/line). Do not send manuscripts, chapbooks or work in any bound form.

6) Please enclose: a) completed and signed Contributor's License and b) a self-addressed envelope (if outside the US, you do not need to include a stamp) for notification and a new Call for Contributions.

7) We will notify all contributors in June 2013.
