I read about this project a while ago, and am psyched that it’s still going forward. So, get submittin’!

* What does being a Radical Woman of Color mean to you? (i.e. community, race, gender, motherhood, activism, silencing, diversity/intersectionality, movement building, etc.)
* How would you devise new strategies for cross-cultural dialogue, theorizing, and alliance-building?
* What does it mean to be an ally?
Global perspectives are welcome. Topic suggestions are welcome.
Payment/Project Agreement below the cut.
Since we are now in the process looking for a publisher, we still don’t have an exact rate of payment for contributors. Although, we will be negotiating a payment of $25-$125 per piece.
A handwritten hard copy of the project agreement must be mailed before submission of final work. Once we make our final decisions, we will fill in our portion of the project agreement and send them back to contributors for their records. Contributors will be contacted with complete details once the publishing agreement is reached.
Please feel free to e-mail us with further questions or need for clarification. We look forward to hearing from you.
