Submit to Upping The Anti

Pitches due November 17, 2008; first draft due January 5, 2009

*WHO WE ARE*

UPPING THE ANTI: A JOURNAL OF THEORY AND ACTION
is a radical journal published twice a year by a pan-Canadian
collective of activists and organizers. We are dedicated to publishing radical theory and analysis about struggles against capitalism, imperialism, and all forms of oppression.

In our first seven issues, we've published articles by and interviews with renowned activists and intellectuals, including Aijaz Ahmad, Himani Bannerji, Grace Lee Boggs, Ward Churchill, Michael Hardt, John Holloway, Sunera Thobani, and many more.

We have covered a wide variety of topics including Palestine
solidarity activism, the strengths and weaknesses of the contemporary anti-war movement, trans politics and anti-capitalism, Indigenous solidarity, contemporary feminist organizing, and activist burnout.

In every issue, activists and organizers reflect on the state of
contemporary organizing in Canada and beyond. We publish theoretical and critical articles, interviews and roundtables.

UPPING THE ANTI
also includes a book review section where activists assess new writing on the Left.


*CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS*

We are currently looking for story ideas for ISSUE EIGHT, which will be released in APRIL of 2009. If you have an idea for a story you would like to see published in our journal, please send us a one page pitch by Monday, November 17, 2008. In addition to the pitch, please submit a short writing sample (max 1,000 words).

In your pitch, please provide a brief description of the topic of your investigation, your main questions, an account of how you will address these questions, as well as a brief biographical note.

Before submitting a pitch, we encourage you to read back issues in order to familiarize yourself with the kind of writing that we
publish. We also encourage you to have a look at the UPPING THE ANTI writer's guide, which can be downloaded at Upping the anti

Pitches should be for original stories that have not been submitted or published elsewhere. Please do not send us a pitch that you have simultaneously sent to another publication.

Although we will consider all pitches, we are especially interested in stories about the current economic crisis, contemporary labour organizing, feminism and women's struggles, dis/ability, international solidarity work, mobilization strategies, marxism and anarchism in the 21st Century, activist interventions in art and culture, and struggles around questions of sex and sexuality.

We will review your pitch and provide you with feedback. After a pitch has been approved, writers are expected to submit their story by deadline. Deadline for first drafts for ISSUE EIGHT is January 5, 2009.

Please submit all pitches and direct all queries to uppingtheanti@gmail.com
