via Hayden's Ferry Review blog:


A multi-cultural, multi-national, and multi-community anthology of literary criticism, critical essays, poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, creative writings, and visual art on HIV and AIDS.

Edited by Kelly Norman Ellis and M L Hunter. A project of the Gwendolyn Brooks Center for Black Literature and Creative Writing at Chicago State University. Published by Third World Press. Scheduled to be released World AIDS Day 2009.

Deadline for submissions: Friday, August 14, 2009.

There have been great strides implemented in the research, treatment, care, and social awareness (both nationally and internationally) of HIV and AIDS. However, the critical dialogue needed to eradicate this disease seems to have dissipated. This anthology seeks to push this life-threatening issue into the consciousness of not only America, but also the world. The current climate in America, under the Obama administration, is hope and change. So what does that mean for a disease that is tied to human sexuality, morality, and the need to feel love and acceptance?

The editors are seeking creative writing in the genres of poetry, fiction, literary nonfiction, memoir writing and journaling as well as visual art that explore the intersection of the human condition with HIV and AIDS. The editors are also seeking artwork in the mediums of photography, fine and graphic arts. We are particularly interested in a vast array of literary criticism that provides social commentary and theoretical and pedagogical models that assist in understanding HIV and AIDS past and present. We also are interested in interviews with survivors and non-survivors of HIV and AIDS.

Submissions should be sent by email attachment to:
