APPLY FOR A MICROGRANT AND PUBLICATION IN FEMMESCAPES!
Femmescapes is a print magazine collecting visual and written work by queer and trans people who experience an affinity with femmeness. It opens space for writers and artists to explore their relationship to femininity or femmeness and put their work conversation with others. We publish work engaging femmeness/femininity both directly and indirectly, on the systemic (including police violence, mass incarceration, migrant justice, global fascism) as well as the intra- and interpersonal levels.
This year, we’ve been awarded a Brooklyn Arts Council grant! A new aspect of the project that this has made possible is a small fund of up to $200 for a femme/feminine trans and/or queer artist or writer who needs monetary support to complete their work. We know wealth and financial stability affect opportunities to make art and publish it, and we want to support someone who needs monetary breathing room to create, complete, or document their work.
For our past three issues, we’ve operated through solicitations, but we would like to open up submissions for this microgrant.
To apply, email femmescapesthezine @ gmail dot com and include: -Artist Bio
-Website and/or links to your work available online
-Description of the work
-Documentation or excerpts of the piece(s)
-Explanation of how much money you are requesting (up to $200) and how you would use the funds: buying materials, paying a photographer to document a performance, paying for medical care, paying rent -- anything! (This explanation will be kept confidential).
-Any information you want to share about your identities or positionality. We will prioritize submissions by trans women, trans femmes, low-income people, and people of color.
Please send your submission by Saturday, May 5th.
If it is accepted, we may offer feedback on the work. The artist or writer(s) who receive funds will commit to submitting their finalized work by Sunday, June 1st.
We look forward to hearing from you!
