      Call for Art and Literary Works

      The Phoenix Project, an exhibit of art and literary works that have
      been created by former cult members, is seeking art, musical, and
      literary submissions for the upcoming annual conference of the
      International Cultic Studies Association, scheduled for July 5 -7,
      2012, in Montreal.

      If you are a former member of a cult or high demand organization, we
      invite you to present your work (in French or English), related to
      your experiences while in your group or during your recovery, at the
      fifth Phoenix Project Exhibit of ex-member artwork. We are looking for
      works that illustrate the world of the cult survivor—including the
      previous group world, healing or recovery, or aspects of the time of
      transition from the cult.

      Creations may be in any art form, including: literary (such as poetry,
      drama, short story, or other writings), music of any kind, dance, and
      the visual arts (such as paintings, drawings, collage, sculpture,
      fiber arts, photography, film, video, or multi-media).

      If desired, your work may be presented anonymously, or through another

      The FINAL DATE FOR ACCEPTANCE to this exhibit is MAY 31. We hope to
      hear from you soon!

      Please e-mail Diana Pletts at the Phoenix Project to submit your art,
      literary, or other works at: exmemberartwork@....

      The conference is run jointly with Info-Cult/Info-Secte and in
      collaboration with the Université de Montréal, The International
      Centre for Comparative Criminology (ICCC) of the Université de
      Montréal, and l’Association québécoise Plaidoyer-Victimes.

      Diana Pletts, M.A., directs and coordinates The Phoenix Project, which
      provides a time and place for cult survivors to present their cult and
      recovery related artwork.  A former member of the Path, a charismatic
      Christian End-Times group, she is working, herself, on the production
      of artwork to express her own group involvement.  Diana has spoken on
      cult affiliation at colleges and churches, on the radio, as a speaker
      for Elderhostel, and at Chautauqua Institution. She lives with her
      husband, Dennis, in Maryland, and is Art and Literary Editor for ICSA
      Today.  Some Phoenix Project works may be considered for publication
      in ICSA Today.  Those interested in participating in The Phoenix
      Project, or in obtaining more information about the Project, are
      invited to e-mail her at exmemberartwork@....
