My poems to be published in Bluestockings Magazine

Recommended Posts

Guest Charlotte J.

I'm very excited.

I just received a positive response from bluestockings magazine regarding three poems I'd sent them for publication. The editor wrote that they "would love to move forward with these poems!" The next step is for us to discuss publication options and possible edits.

I've been writing poetry for many years and have had some poems published in small magazines before. This publication is definitely something new for me--it's put out by Brown University and is a feminist, trans-inclusive publication. Publication will also be a part of my coming-out process; the poems will be published under my real name.

I'm so excited!

:) :) :)

Thanks, everyone! No sneak previews, though. I know my blog is private here, but that gets into first publication rights territory.

I've been in contact with the editors at Bluestockings. Publishing is a slow process. We're making progress, and I hope the first of the three poems will be published on the website in September. We'll see. I'll update this thread when it is.

      They don't understand their rules neither, lolll that's very funny
    • Jani
      You're probably correct Mary.  Its all in the eyes of the beholder.  I admit I don't understand the rules either.
    • Jani
      Generally we're raised not thinking about gender, its just thrust upon us.  As we in the TG community think about it a lot while others not so much.  
    • MaryMary
      that's why passing is such a mystery to me. I don't think I have control over that. Others kind of use rules I don't always understand. The only key is to focus on knowing myself and being myself and not really care about the spectrum... or at least as little as possible. My point system is me clumsily trying to understand with an algorythm because I'm a programmer, lolllll

      Freehold I think it was

      Without cheating I do have to say I don't recall.  I guess the data bank does get clogged sometimes!    Thanks for the explanation of Half Speed Master Cyndee.  $20 was pricey back then.  
    • Teri Anne
      It is a very interesting subject indeed. So many feel they have to have fit a certain  slot along the gender spectrum and there are just so many slots that are different that it can be very confusing to new people dealing with gender issues. That spectrum is so vast you may never find that perfect place where you "fit" in.I think thats where many have so much trouble  dealing with gender issues.

      I remember those half speed masters. Never had one though.Trivia question what band name or names did Boston use b4 Boston
    • Jani
      An interesting concept!  I am sure it is true in many situations as some women can pull off uber masculine looks and still be seen as feminine.
    • Cyndee
      Thanks for your question Jani, CBS records made a limited number of Boston's first album cut with half speed mastering, released in 1980, and sold them to collectors back then at a premium (~ $ 20). They were cut at half speed, just as google explains below. Last I checked on E bay they were fetching about a hundred dollars today. They were sought after for their superior dynamic range on a vinyl medium.......   What exactly is half-speed mastering? It's a vinyl cutting process whereby the disc-cutting lathe for an LP is run at half the speed – so for an album that would be 16 and two thirds, which is half of 33 and a third – and the master source is run at half the speed as well.

      Yes, I think I agree. The special thing to me is that I started thinking the 90% + was a question of physic and looks but with time it's crazy how you realize that self confidence and the energy you emit is so important. I swear sometimes I go to the local gaz pump and the other person sees me from the back... with a huge winter coat on and they say "madame". Why? lol It's not because I wear makeup or my clothes or even my voice or my hairs. I'm wearing a huge coat, still have broad shoulders and most of the time when that happen I'm even wearing the hoody part of the coat on my head lol And they say "madame" ? Why? it's a mysterious thing to me.    I often picture a point system in my head with everything that goes with it. I think that if I make a minimum amount of efforts I can reach the number of points to pass but I cannot have a buzz cut and still pass. Many cis woman can do that because they have enough points elsewhere (confidence, energy, looks, skeletal structure, etc)...   anyway, fascinating topic.

      This. My therapist's daughter tried doing the FTM transition but after maybe four years they (meaning therapist's daughter) decided they were never going to be masculine enough so they decided to do the non-binary approach and it has worked with much more success. Just be yourself and if you don't fall within the lines then there's not a place for you too. It is our duty to be ready to politely educate people.
    • Jani
      I love that intro!  Sort of ELP like?      So do you have to play the Half Speed Master at half speed or is that just the speed the master was cut at?  I can imagine the master had much better clarity.    
    • Teri Anne
      The whole binary non binary non gender conforming  thing I never really understood and maybe me being out longer than those terms being used had something to do with it. I learned be yourself and present as the person you want to be seen as and in time people get to know you as "that person " . I have seen some get misgendered and then get all mad about it and demand the person call them by the proper pronoun. Most people have no idea about the pronoun thing or the MTF gender thing and they don't really know what or how to refer to us. I was in a Target store and a young trans girl MtF got misgendered and she started to get really pissed and I walked up and took her arm and said look I was once where you are now so please let this go. She looked at me and was kind of shocked and said you are trans? No way ! I made a friend that day and hopefully I helped her to deal with  a sticky situation.

      My doc is extra-cautious. So seeing as the woman was bumped from 0mg Progesterone/Day to XXmg/D and from XXmg to XXmg Oral Est/D is incredibly alarming. It appears to be no wonder what with her daily smoking and 2 beers/D for a month and this "supratherapeutics" that her regimen became injurious. It alarms me that the articles find her jump from XXmg/D to XXmg/D to be "within published guidelines," implying that such a drastic change is advisable, especially to this high risk patient. I also find it sad that the women chose to continue smoking and drinking despite doctors advising against whilst they pulled her HRT and subverted it with XXMG Hydroxychloroquine. It would appear she has underlying substance issues not involved with HRT or PCT.   Thanks for the read Carolyn Marie! I had fun with this one.
