CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!

The Sixth Edition of the Radical Women of Color Carnival will be held at Mamita Mala's on August 9th!

August’s hot summer edition will feature privacy, public information, and raw honesty on the net. Specifically we will be addressing how sometime for many of us RWOC bloggers our raw honesty can be taken out of context and can even trivialize our public life as women of color. We all have many facets, multiple identities. How much of that gets compromised (or not) when we write online? How much of us have to compromise many of our raw thoughts, emotions, past pains, etc? When, why and what is the value of self-censorship? Is it fear of real life merging with virtual life? How blurred/static is that line anyway? How does this all play into how our day to day resistance to the state of the world/nation/state/humanity manifests in our real world actions?

Any forms of self-expression are welcome (including poetry and visual art) and can be sent to Mala by Saturday, August 5, 12 a.m. EST. E-Mail Submissions to mamitamala@yahoo.com

For further information see the call-out details posted on Mamita Mala's website.

I would like to participate but I am not quite sure what I could submit. Could someone share "who" fits in and what you are interested in hearing from a woman of color blogger?

hey girl, i just got a hold of vegan, and she said that you should try using firefox if it's at all possible--(as a way to begin eliminating problems) and that she would continue to work to find a way to fix this!!! (did I tell you that mamita is on the same server as me?)...ok, well, i hope things are well!!! :-)
