WisCon Chronicles, vol. 6 submission details

Over at Futures of Feminism and Fandom: The WisCon Chronicles Volume 6, Alexis Lothian has posted the submission details for the next volume of the WiCon Chronicles, which she is editing. If you're interested in contributing, you'll want to read the whole post. But here's the gist:
This year's theme, 'Futures of Feminism and Fandom,' is intended to focus on the ways that WisCon embodies movements toward a broader and more intersectional understanding of what feminism is and can be, as well as how changes in technology and communication affect our experience of fandom and of feminism. Panel reports, contemplations, and other thoughts (or images!) relating to this are all very welcome. If you have something you want to write about, an event at WisCon that you want to document, or a response to something that's happened online relating to the con, please write to me and/or submit even if it doesn't seem obviously related to the theme.

The initial deadline is August 1 2011. You are more than welcome to submit earlier––perhaps you want to start writing while WisCon is fresh in your memory? Send your submission as a Word or .rtf file to wischronicles @ gmail dot com. Lengths are flexible; aim for 2500 words if you aren't sure.

Thanks for the link! I'll add that the blog where it's posted is a Dreamwidth community.

I've only used it for announcements so far, but and anyone is welcome to join and post if you'd like to share ideas or get feedback. (And if you need a Dreamwidth account, just let me know and I'll invite you.)
