Although TRIVIA is not an academic journal, we publish a limited number of critical essays that offer analysis or evaluation of an issue, concept, idea, or current event. Critical essays are meant to inform readers and/or bring them up to date.

Authors should reflect on their essay's intellectual context in non-hierarchical and constructive ways. This might include, for example, citing key stakeholders or mapping position points in a controversy or referencing scholarly debates.

We are especially interested in transformative critical essays that bridge different communities, perspectives, and the walls of the university.

TRIVIA is interested in feminist dialogue...

...between us and our readers; between experts in various fields; between writers and their publics; between artists and their publics; between pioneers and neophytes; between the famous and not-so-famous; and between people with different politics, sentiments, and dreams. Hence, the category of interviews.

We welcome conversations and testimonies that provoke, inform, entertain, unsettle, illuminate, soothe, and/or otherwise move us.

Interviews should include a brief statement about why we should publish the interview, and should be formatted to make clear who is asking and who is answering the questions.

Please include a brief bio of the interviewer and the subject(s), as well as a head shot or other photo of at least 300 pixels.

Up to 3 poems, single-spaced, may be submitted by an individual author per publishing period. You may also include voice recordings of your poem(s), submittable in MP3 format.

Do not send previously published (either online or print) work. We will consider simultaneous submissions, but you must let us know immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.

Please include a brief bio telling us who you are and highlighting your achievements.

"After-Readings" and "Trivial Lives," both traditions established by the original editors, will be regular features of TRIVIA: Voices of Feminism.

From TRIVIA 13: "After-readings are a form of review essay in which the dialogue between reader and text becomes a catalyst for the reader's own meditations. They acknowledge the intense interaction between readers and texts and the transformational nature of reading. We welcome after-readings of current and non-current publications. Dialogues with films and artwork are also welcome."

From TRIVIA 2: "While many women's writings have been completely hidden from our view, others, though published and given worldwide attention, have never received the kind of recognition they deserve. The purpose of Trivial Lives is to honor those women who have suffered from one or both forms of neglect, as well as to inspire the reader to seek out the sources of each woman's work, the resources that tell us more about her, and the concrete effects of her ideas in the world." We wish to expand this category to include 1) women writers, artists, activists, thinkers from around the globe whose voices broke the silence barrier but are now fading away with time and 2) women who are not necessarily writers or thinkers, but whose lives and/or work are marginalized and deserve recognition.

Please include a brief bio and a head shot or other photo of at least 300 pixels.
