The following are the scheduled topics for future issues of White Crane. In an effort to remain as topical as a quarterly publication can be, the order of this schedule may be changed so that we may be responsive to the "zeitgeist."
Music & Poetry
We honor the place of music in our lives. We shed light on pioneers in the creation of Gay music. We revel in the works of visionary Gay troubadors.
We also will announce the winner of the 2009 White Crane/James White Poetry Prize
Deadline for Spring 2009:
February 1, 2009
Celebrating Our 20th Anniversary & the 30th Anniversary of the 1st Radical Faerie Gathering
Exploring what survivors experienced then and what we've experienced since, where we are now and what we're doing to get where we want to be in the future, individually and collectively. A call for stories, photos, poems and other sharings from 1979 survivors, and from younger faeries influenced by that seminal event and their own, more recent, experiences and dreams. Deadline: May 1, 2009
We honor the lives of those who follow a humanist, agnostic or atheist path in life. What is the place of reason in life and how does one construct a life without the need for certainty about or belief in a God.
Deadline for Fall 2009:
August 1, 2009
We invite an exploration of our relationship with fathers. How are we fathered? How do we father? Conflict and resonance? The man who set a role we rebelled from or grew to resemble? Tell us your story of Father.
Deadline for Winter 2009:
November 1, 2009
