This is an advance announcement for the Tuesday, April 1, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl. This time the theme will be "genderqueer people."
I'll be soliciting ideas for transfolk, two-spirits, genderfluid or agender people, gays, lesbians, asexuals, historic figures, genderqueer shamans, gendershifting deities or heroes, other folks with uncommon sex/gender identity, alien or fantasy genders, bigots, gender scholars, discovering something unusual about sex/gender, changing sex/gender, coming out, passing, falling in love with an incompatible gender, transbashing, plot twists, holy places, stages and theatres, bathrooms, bedrooms, other places where sex/gender may be an issue, confusion, self-hate, the joy of self-discovery, adaptive equipment, pride flags or rings, historic legends about genderqueer people, queerplatonic or otherwise queer relationships, vocabulary, and poetic forms in particular.
Here's a glossary of genderqueer terms

I have a linkback poem, "Hatching into the Future" (20 verses, Dragonsilk). I need a volunteer to host this.
If you're interested, mark the date on your calendar, and please hold actual prompts until the "Poetry Fishbowl Open" post next week. (If you're not available that day, or you live in a time zone that makes it hard to reach me, you can leave advance prompts.) Meanwhile, if you want to help with promotion, please feel free to link back here or repost this on your blog. ( Collapse )
