RSS - Call for submission about the Muslim Ban




In the USA the Supreme Court’s reinstatement of the Ban restricted nationals of six predominantly Muslim countries and refugees–unless they can prove they’ve got a “bona fide relationship” with the United States. The AAWW wants to ask "what is a bona fide relationship, anyway ?


The AAWW is calling writers to send stories, poems, essays, and interviews that answer this question and engage with the Muslim Ban while also offering creative openings from which to imagine new narratives. What does it mean to have a bona fide relationship to a country? Or to have your bona fide relationship to your family defined by the state? What bona fide relationships do you want to have?


The themes expected are exclusion, identity, and marginalization through this vehicle of examining the Supreme Court’s language. The genres can be speculative fiction, journalism, visual art, comics, and stand-up. Priority will be given to writers from Muslim communities and refugee populations, but we welcome submissions from all.
