An Anthology on Friendship by South Asian Women and Genderqueer Folx
Friendship, relative to romantic love, has received relatively little attention in both written and cinematic texts. In the past year, with enforced isolation and changing the nature of social interactions, our friendships have grown and transformed in a variety of ways. Friendships arouse deep emotions: love, excitement, jealousy, anger.
We are looking for short essays and personal narratives (300 and 2500 words); graphic essays, poetry, art of all kinds that reflect on the wonders and complexities of friendships.
Possible themes include but are not limited to:
- Friendships between women
- Friendships across gender identities
- Reconnecting with friends from school and college
- Intergenerational friendships
- Cross border friendships
- Online friendships
- Inter religion and inter caste friendships
- Mentoring and friendships
- Food and friendship
- Travel and friendship
- Cinema and friendship
- Fiction and friendship
- Friendship during a pandemic
- Activism and friendship
- Feminist collectives and friendship
- Transnational friendships
- Single people and friendships
- Friendships with non-humans
- Friendship breakups
