Brevity  Special Gender Issue

Brevity is excited to be launching our second special issue. The first, Ceiling or Sky: Female Nonfictions After the VIDA Count, focused on the important contributions of female writers to the creative nonfiction movement. Published in 2012, the issue sparked a number of productive conversations about women in publishing and brought strong, important new works to our readers. 

This next special issue will focus on experiences of gender and feature new work by Kate Bornstein, the original gender outlaw. Ms. Bornstein’s books include Gender OutlawMy (New) Gender Workbook, and Queer and Present Danger. The issue will be guest edited by Silas Hansen and Sarah Einstein. Silas is an assistant professor at Ball State University and has published personal essays that explore his experiences as a transgender man in Slate, Colorado Review, The Normal School, and elsewhere. Sarah is the past Managing Editor of Brevity and the author of the upcoming book Mot: A Memoir (University of Georgia Press, 2015).

It is our goal to bring you a diverse, inclusive set of writings by people across the spectrum of gendered experience, and to do this we need to read a little further, work a little harder, and spend a little more money than we usually do to put out the journal. We're reaching out to you--our readers and contributors--to ask for a little extra help in putting this issue out into the world. 

We have some exciting rewards, generously donated by Brevity authors. There are signed copies of books (a few of them out of print and only easily available here!), essay critiques, and other premiums. But mostly, we want to offer you our gratitude. Brevity is a community of writers and readers who engage generously with each other, and we're excited to have you be a part of this new project with us.

First Stretch Goal: $5,000.00  

Keep Brevity in the Black!  

Oh. Oh, my. We're beyond moved that you've fully funded our initial goal within the first hours of our campaign. But don't stop now! We have some exciting stretch goals coming up. The first is pretty basic: If we reach $5,000 during this Kickstarter, Brevity will be able to meet its operating costs for our next publication year without needing to do any additional fundraising or asking Dinty to give us an advance on our allowance. (We may still ask him to borrow the car.) Help us keep Brevity free to our readers and able to pay our writers!

We have an even more exciting stretch goal planned if this one goes through... one that I'm having a very hard time not just telling you about RIGHT NOW! But that's how Kickstarter works, isn't it? So, you'll just have to wait and see what we have planned if we make it passed the five thousand dollar mark. But let me tell you, it's AMAZING.

Second Stretch Goal: $10,000.00

A Special Issue on Race, Racism, and Racialization guest-edited by Ira Sukrungruang and featuring new work by Claudia Rankine 

You continue to astound us with your generosity! We can’t believe we have already made it through our first stretch goal, and everyone at Brevity is grateful and moved and more than a little overwhelmed. Thank you! 

Our next stretch goal is, we think, a really amazing one: our next special issue, featuring new work by award-winning poet and playwright Claudia Rankine and guest-edited by one of our favorite (not that we have favorites) Brevity authors, the also-award-winning Ira Sukrungruang. 

Claudia Rankine (as if you didn’t know) is the author of five collections of poetry, including most recently Citizen: An American Lyric, a finalist for the National Book Award and winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Poetry. She has coedited American Women Poets in the 21st Century; Where Lyric Meets Language (2002), American Poets in the 21st Century: The New Poetics (2007), and The Racial Imaginary: Writers on Race in the Life of the Mind (2014). Her poems have been included in the anthologies Great American Prose Poems: From Poe to the Present (2003), Best American Poetry (2001), and The Garden Thrives: Twentieth Century African-American Poetry (1996). Her play Detour/South Bronx premiered in 2009 at New York’s Foundry Theater. 

We’ve been reading, and teaching, and gushing over Rankine’s work quite a lot recently, and are more than a little beside ourselves that she’s said yes to being next year’s anchor author. We can’t wait to bring you a new piece of her powerful writing! 

Guest editor Ira Sukrungruang is the author of the memoirs Southside Buddhist and Talk Thai: The Adventures of Buddhist Boy, and the poetry collection In Thailand It Is Night. He is the coeditor of two anthologies on the topic of obesity: What Are You Looking At? The First Fat Fiction Anthology and Scoot Over, Skinny: The Fat Nonfiction Anthology. He is the recipient of the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Nonfiction Literature, an Arts and Letters Fellowship, and the Emerging Writer Fellowship. His work has appeared in many literary journals, including Post Road, The Sun, and Creative Nonfiction. He is one of the founding editors of Sweet: A Literary Confection (sweetlit.com), and teaches in the MFA program at University of South Florida and the low-residency MFA program at City University in Hong Kong. For more information about him, please visit: www.buddhistboy.com

We hope you’re as excited about this announcement as we are, although unless you’ve just gotten giddy and a little teary-eyed, done a happy dance and called your mother to tell her that you’ve finally made something of yourself, you probably aren’t. We are deeply honored by the amazing writers who are willing to work with us, and the amazing readers who make our work possible. Thank you.

Risks and challenges

We see very little risk in this, since this will be our 49th issue and we think the other 48 have been pretty terrific. We suppose it's possible that Dinty will finally throw up his hands, announce he has just had it, and move to Alaska to be an Ice Road Trucker, but we feel this is a minimal risk. He is, after all, the one who has sounded the alarm about the dangers of polar bears coming south to eat us all.
