This Delirious Hem feature calls for women poets and writers to submit texts and images that examine the relationship between writing and fashion in their lives. Please submit:

1. A brief text that comments on, enacts, or somehow examines the relationship between your clothing and fashion accessories, and your writing and writing accessories.

2. Images (1-5) that display this connection.

We imagine that these texts and images will take all sorts of forms, from poems to prose sketches to photo shoots to close-ups of fabrics and textures. You may choose to include your body in your images, or not. You should interpret these guidelines as loosely as they are intended; if you have questions about a particular idea, feel free to email the curators at the email addresses listed below.

Submit to curators Kate Durbin and Becca Klaver (kate_durbin at yahoo dot com, beccavista at yahoo dot com) by April 15, 2011. Please include a short bio.
