call for special section on worker's rights: cream city review
- cream city review is pleased to announce a special section for our
upcoming Spring 2011 issue: “Dispatches from the Front: Labor and the
Fight For Worker’s Rights”
Do you have a recent, related experience that you would like to share
with the world, whether protesting at the Capital in Madison or working
in your community to support the rights of workers? We are seeking
submissions of personal narrative, poetry, art, even fiction, that
seeks to document the ongoing protest over the dissolution of workers'
rights in Wisconsin.
Ideally, we are looking for local Wisconsin voices that represent a
wide rangeof communities and identities, but will also consider work
from those in solidarity from around the world. We also welcome voices
of protest from communities impacted by other recent policy enactment
in Madison (cuts in health care,educations, etc…). Preferencewill be
given to voices that have fewer resources for having their voice
inprint; cream city review will also seek to juxtapose those voices
with workfrom published writers/journalists that offer a personal
perspective on theirexperience.
We invite writers and artists to submit their work via our online
submission manager at
Please selectthe appropriate genre for your work, i.e. “Labor poetry”
or “Labor visual art,”etc. Submissions selected for this special
section will be published in or around May/June 2011. Deadline for
submissions is May 1, 2011.
