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     Please submit original, unpublished essays or queries as e-mail attachments in RTF (rich text format), to: kbridgford@yahoo.com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
Morgan O'Hara:LIVE TRANSMISSIONS render visible normally invisible or fleeting movement patterns through seismograph-like drawing done in real time. The pursuit of vitality carefully observed through human activity is drawn simultaneously with both hands and transmitted to paper. Following closely the intensity of each segment of an activity, the direction of the line as well as the quality of its intensity is transmitted. If a person makes a gentle movement, a delicate line is drawn. If the action followed is forceful or violent, a correspondingly vigorous line is made. This is done simultaneously and as much as possible without “thinking." The dialectic between observer and participant, control versus relaxed participation coalesce to form the conceptual base for LIVE TRANSMISSIONS. Scale and physical limitations are determined by real-life expediency. In 2018 there exist approximately 4000 LIVE TRANSMISSION drawings done both privately and publicly on five continents. LIVE TRANSMISSIONS communicate beyond the specificity of language.

HANDWRITING THE CONSTITUTION is a social art practice which O’Hara began in January 2017. It is a process by which people come together for a specific time period to handwrite the Constitution. This practice encourages a quiet, introspective process, a form of activism for introverts. As people copy out texts which guarantee freedom and human rights, a strong sense of community is silently created. www.handwritingtheconstitution.com
