42.3: Sports

Room Magazine - - ROCA PAYNE | BELOVED -

From tales of team tri­umph and heart­break to the draw (and draw­backs) of a cul­ture of com­pe­ti­tion, ed­i­tor Meghan Bell and as­sis­tant ed­i­tor Che­lene Knight in­vite you to sub­mit your best po­etry, fic­tion, cre­ative non-fic­tion, and vis­ual art about sports cul­ture and ath­let­ics. We want work that will make us sweat and cheer. Send us your best sto­ries about women and non-bi­nary ath­letes, sports fan­dom, al­ter­na­tive sports (e.g. the­atre sports, e-sports—sur­prise us!), and how sports cul­ture can in­ter­sect with vi­o­lence and toxic mas­culin­ity. We also en­cour­age sub­mis­sions that are crit­i­cal of sports cul­ture, such as how ath­let­ics and fan cul­tures priv­i­lege cer­tain bod­ies over oth­ers. Un­der­rep­re­sented writ­ers—in­clud­ing but not ex­clu­sive to women and non-bi­nary writ­ers who are Black, In­dige­nous, peo­ple of colour, queer, and/or dis­abled—are par­tic­u­larly en­cour­aged to sub­mit.

New work by nov­el­ist and par­a­lympian Ar­ley McNeney will be fea­tured in this is­sue.

Sub­mis­sions are ac­cepted from Nov 1, 2018 to Jan 31, 2019.
