October 2018 Guest Editor/s are SHE SPEAKS UK!!! Theme/s: GENDER & REVOLUTION

Burning House Press are excited to welcome SHE SPEAKS UK as our October guest editors!!! As of today She Speaks will take over editorship of Burning House Press online for the full month of October.

Submissions for She Speaks are open from today – 1st October and will remain open until 24th.

She Speaks Theme/s for the month are as follows

 

GENDER & REVOLUTION

 

She Speaks have introduced their theme/s for your guidance:

 

Gender & Revolution

“If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.”

  • Audre Lorde

“No real social change has ever been brought about without a revolution… Revolution is but thought carried into action.”

  • Emma Goldman (Writer and Anarchist)

What does gender look like to you? If gender is a construct, how would you deconstruct it? If you could re-write or reframe gender norms, would you? What would your world look like? What changes, if any, would you like to see?

What does revolution look like? Why is it important and what changes are needed?

We want you to use words or images to investigate gender, revolution, or both. You could draw on personal experiences, historical / her-storical narratives, imagined environments or cultural commentary. We welcome voices that represent different worldviews, beliefs and geographical locations.

We want art that breaks rules; that challenges patriarchy; that expresses personal struggle; that exposes the impact of cultural norms. Don’t be afraid to break out of your comfort zone and push the boundaries.

We can’t wait to see your submissions.

Love,

She Speaks

‘Some Things’ – A BURNING HOUSE PRESS interview with PANYA BANJOKO – by Trevor Wright

IMG_2021

Who is Panya the Poet and what does she do?

I am a writer, primarily, and an archivist. I mainly write poetry although I have written some children’s stories and I’m toying with a novel.  I also run Nottingham Black Archive and as part of that, a Black Writers Network. It’s all about raising awareness, helping with professional development and showcasing local black talent through a range of different initiatives. Read a Black Author for example which happens in October and where people are invited to read together in Slab Square. I organised a poetry weekender for Windrush 70 featuring Kei Miller then looking do a Festival next year – not just poetry but MC’s, grime and singers because we’re network of all kinds of writers.  I want to showcase the talent, because that’s just not happening.

Liber Exuvia – Elytron Frass – gnOme books

elytron frass liber exuvia1.jpg

Reading Liber Exuvia by Elytron Frass is to enter the murmuring memoirs of an astral traveller. Is to encounter the self as it is – not as fixed point or outpost in temporal time but self as vaporous, porous and atemporal – self as ghost haunting the flesh, spectre sojourning the house of mist. Self as fracture, fact amassed and massacred, exploding and imploding in all directions, past present future for infinity. Everywhere and everyone and everywhen. Continue reading “Liber Exuvia – Elytron Frass – gnOme books”

Submissions for James are open from today – 1st June and will remain open until 23rd June.

James’ Theme/s for the month are as follows

Liminal Spaces

 

 

James has introduced his theme for your guidance:

I’m fascinated by those spaces that are on the threshold between the interior and exterior, the conversational and the unnamable, the recognizable present and the intangible future. Please send work you feel might be too eccentric for other venues—writing with twilight-lit edges, photography that blends the particular with the anonymous, art that is charged with the radically other.

 

Are there images and phrase that only grow more cryptic the more we think about them? Are there barely audible voices still waiting to be recorded? Alejandra Pizarnik’s poetry, Shirley Jackson’s novels, Sun Ra’s discography, Tarkovsky’s films, Beckett’s plays, Francis Bacon’s humanoid creatures, voices reading the Tarot heard in the static between radio stations, night gardens with metallic-seeming insects…mystic political tracts, literary realism haunted by sci-fi, Gothic verse imagining lunar vistas of paradisiac ruin…Please send work involving liminal spaces that question and invoke.

jamespatepic

 

James Pate is a poet and fiction writer. His books include The Fassbinder Diaries (Civil Coping Mechanisms), Flowers Among the Carrion: Essays on the Gothic in Contemporary Poetry (Action Books Salvo Series), and Speed of Life (Fahrenheit Press). He teaches creative writing at Shepherd University, in Shepherdstown, WV.

Massive Thank You To April Guest Editor C.C. O’Hanlon

As April draws to a close – our guest editor for the month, C.C. O’Hanlon, has posted his final selections, and is winding down his tenure.

Burning House Press would like to thank C.C. for everything he has done this month – it has been a colossal few weeks of submissions and engagement – and this successful month has meant an abundance of admin and responsibilities – C.C. has managed every challenge that his editorship has brought him with total aplomb – and we are truly grateful for all his hard work.

We would also like to extend a massive thank you to all who have submitted work to BHP during April – and for the amazing way that your submissions and contributions have engaged with C.C.’s fantastic themes of Place: Movement / Escape / Exploration / Architecture. We have been absolutely blown away by your creations. Thank you so much for continuing to entrust BHP with your precious art.

Be sure to catch all the fantastic, diverse, incredibly wide-ranging and glorious pieces of writing, art, photography and hybrids selected and featured by C.C. as part of his themed editorship HERE.

We appreciate every single submission that we receive – and although not all submissions make it onto the site, every single submission sent is valued and of merit, and we encourage you to continue to submit to future editors and respond to forthcoming themes.

The main idea behind the guest editorships at BHP is so that we can keep the platform fresh, continue widening the scope of the community, the readership and the work and artists featured, to posit new approaches and directions to themes both old and new, to bring new work to new audiences, to stimulate a correspondence of ideas and responses, to offer creatives an inclusive space and platform to take the reins as editors, to instigate and initiate creative cross-pollinations and cultural contaminations – and during his editorship C.C. has ably fulfilled every facet of that remit and then some – THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING C.C.!!! WE TRULY HOPE YOU COME BACK AND EDIT BHP AGAIN!!! Xx

 

_DSC0010-8

We now prepare to hand over to May’s guest editor – more themes, and more opportunities to submit your genius creations to BHP! Thanks again, C.C.!

Submissions Are Open!!! from 1st April – until 23rd April – for our third guest editor C.C. O’HANLON!!!

Burning House Press are excited to welcome C.C. O’HANLON as our third guest editor! C.C. will take over editorship of Burning House Press online for the full month of April – when he will then hand over the reins to our fourth guest editor for the month of May.

Submissions for C.C. are open from today – 1st April and will remain open until 23rd April.

C.C. will be responding and publishing your submissions on a rolling basis during the month of April – and has chosen his themes for submissions!

C.C.’s Themes are

Place: Movement, Escape, Exploration, Architecture.

C.C. has introduced the themes himself for your guidance:

“The act of journeying contributes to a sense of physical and mental well-being, while the monotony of prolonged settlement or regular work weaves patterns in the brain that engender fatigue and a sense of personal inadequacy…”

– Bruce Chatwin, from Nomad Invasions

Overall, I’m not looking to reassure, but rather, to some extent, to unsettle.

For submissions, C.C. is looking for your poetry, short stories, flash fiction, prose poems, art, collage, painting, photography – as well as non-fiction submissions: essays, reviews, commentary, features, interviews.
