"In this anthology, we hope to challenge the multifaceted culture of shame and the layers of silence surrounding it. We are soliciting poems, stories, and essays that critically confront shame, its causes, and its far-reaching effects. We’re interested in work that addresses shame on the individual level, the systemic level, or both. We want the personal and the theoretical, the visceral and the thought-provoking. We want to know how shame affects the individual but we also want to know how the culture of shame informs and enables imperialism, environmental devastation, mass incarceration, poverty, Trump."
