Claiming Space: A re-centring of literary and artistic esteem onto experiences that don’t fit what’s taken as the status quo.
Welcome to Room Magazine
Room is a space where women can speak, connect, and showcase their creativity. Each quarter we publish
original, thought-provoking works that reflect women's strength, sensuality, vulnerability, and wit.
Read the sign that says prohibited, members only, or do not enter, and go there anyway. Cross a line and permeate a border. Explore a haunting. Transgress the social code and live beyond simplistic binaries. Organize a sit-in, a protest, or squat. "Trespass" is the theme for Room 38.3, which will feature fiction by Doretta Lau and an interview with Harsha Walia.
Editor Helen Polychronakos and Assistant Editor Leah Golob seek poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and visual art about doing what you've been told not to do. Poems that cross-dress as manifestos, essays that defy all rules, photography as both art and document, reportage disguised as fiction—generic trespass is also welcome.
Deadline: January 31, 2015
