What are we looking for?
Types of Content: Poetry, Short Fiction, Creative Nonfiction, Essays, Art.
- While it is not necessary for you to be bisexual, the work that is produced must have some level of bisexual content. If work is written by a bisexual, this automatically meets the requirement.
- Since we are new, there is a lot of freedom with the type of work that can be submitted, but work that is thought-provoking is more likely to be considered.
- For essays, the content ranges. I envision essays about bisexuality from a variety of subject backgrounds (psychological, biological, sociological, etc) but also essays that make a case for bisexuals in the media. For example, an essay about Shakespeare being bisexual, with valid citations and credibility would be accepted.
Essays (or other work) about characters in novels, television, comics, movies, or other forms of media that would be better represented as bisexual. This could be from a fan perspective (for example: a lot of people think that Dean from Supernatural is bisexual, and a firm case with episodic citations would be acceptable).
Another example of this could be: calling out the representations of bisexuality that already exist (for example, shows like Orange is the New Black and Glee have bisexual characters that they misrepresent. Calling out this behavior is a great addition to the conversation about Bisexuality).
