POETRY CRITICISM FEATURED ARTIST CONTRIBUTORS GUIDELINES ABOUT TIMELINE
Submission Guidelines for Essays

ezzo Cammin welcomes submissions of essays on any aspect of poetry in form by women. Suggested topics include studies of the work of a single author or group of authors; studies of how women have treated a particular form (such as the sonnet, or experimental forms); or controversies surrounding women writers and form (such as canonization or evolving attitudes toward poetic form).
Although we do not require essays to focus primarily or exclusively on formal elements of the poetry discussed, we do expect that essay writers will include some commentary on form as a way of illuminating their arguments.

     Although we do not require essays to focus primarily or exclusively on formal elements of the poetry discussed, we do expect that essay writers will include some commentary on form as a way of illuminating their arguments. We do not limit our purview to the twentieth century, or to poetry in English; however, we do ask you to provide translations if you submit an essay on women poets who write in languages other than English. Also, for essays accepted for publication in Mezzo Cammin, we may ask the writer to assist us in obtaining permission to quote coyrighted material. Unfortunately, at this time we do not pay for essays. We plan to run special features on a particular author or topic at least every other issue; the new topic will be announced in the preceding issue. Our preferred length is 5000 words (20 pages) but shorter or longer pieces may be considered. Please follow MLA citation format.

     Please submit original, unpublished essays or queries as e-mail attachments in RTF (rich text format), to: kbridgford@yahoo.com

FEATURED ARTIST
Megan Marlatt:Looking like large puppet heads, it was "anima", the root of "animation", that led me to the making of the big heads, (or "capgrossos" as they are called in Catalonia where I learned the craft.) Anima is the soul or what breathes life into a being and to animate an inanimate object, an artist must insert a little soul into it. However to bring attention to what is invisible, (the soul), I chose to mold its opposite in solid form: the persona, the ego, the big head, the mask. Nearly every culture across the globe has masks. They allow performers to climb into the skin of another being and witness the other's world from behind their eyes. While doing so, the mask erases all clues of the performer's age, gender, species or race. In this regard, I find them to be the most transformative and empathic of all human artifacts.
