Dead and Alive: Being with Ancestors

Call For Submissions

The next few issues of Dark Matter: Women Witnessing will be devoted to ancestors: to beings, both human and nonhuman, who were precious to us and whom we have lost due to disease, injury, environmental harm or natural causes. Our intention is to prioritize beings whose presence in the world and/or whose relationship with us contributed in some way to the healing of our relationship with the earth. This is an invitation to remember and resurrect these beings in such a way as to make them present for our readers: to write, speak, paint, photograph, move, sing and dance on behalf of and with them. Photos, artwork, videolinks are all welcome. We will accept writing of all lengths, within our 5,000 word maximum, and may decide to post shorter submissions on Facebook in the interval before the issue appears.  We welcome submissions by women and nonbinary writers and artists.
