As Australia attempts to lift the brown veil of its minstrel ghost, how do its poets respond? What has happened in your country?
This issue of Cordite will be guest edited by Winnie Siulolovao Dunn, who will be looking for:
- poems that address and are critical of the use of brownface;
- poems that re-centre cultural stories and storytelling;
- poems that unpack the dangers of predominantly White-controlled nations;
- poems that reflect the nuanced intersections – race, age, class, gender, sexuality, disability – of its writer.
Submit poems (prose, comics, visual, concrete) or works of micro-fiction (500 words maximum).
For this theme Black, Indigenous and people of colour are strongly encouraged to submit work.
Closing date for submissions: Sunday 11 October 2020.
