      Call for Submissions for Borderlands 2: Tales from Disputed Territories between Races and Cultures

      I am currently seeking personal stories and visual art on the theme of FAMILY for the upcoming issue of my compilation zine about mixed-race, bicultural and transracial adoptee identities.

Your stories are valuable, and it's time to bring our often neglected cross-cultural and multi-racial experiences from margin to center by telling our own stories!

I starting writing Hermana, Resist in 2000.

      I am looking for submissions that keep in mind what Hermana, Resist is, from folks who know that love is political. The best way to know what it's about is to read a past issue or two.

      Send your best work, soulful, compelling, compassionate, angry, original and unforgettable-send your history.

      Poets-up to three poems
      artists & photographers-send up to 5 images via email. Note that they will probably be published in b/w.

      Allied Media Conference


      Click here <http://alliedmediaconference.org/program/fullprogram> for descriptions of 18 workshops, panels and film-screenings that will give you a glimpse of how sweet the AMC will be this year.

      This is only about 30% of the conference content so look out for a lot more sweetness in the coming days.


      The conference this year features several tracks-- think less "railroad tracks" that would route your interest in a particular direction and more "animal tracks" that end up criss-crossing each
      other repeatedly as they travel in unexpected patterns…
