The Boston Phoenix is hosting a political slash challenge! In their article, Move over, Kirk/Spock: time for politislash, the paper asks for readers to submit art or stories featuring political slash pairings, and give as examples, “Is Obama turning to Biden for comfort in the aftermath of Rahm’s betrayal? Have Carly Fiorina and Maxine Waters shared a tender moment or two? Can you picture some proper Blair-on-Brown action? ” (Of course we can.)
Editor Sara Rosenbaum notes, “We’ve put out the above call to our readers here in Boston — but we really want submissions from slash fandom, too. This isn’t a make-fun-of-slashers deal; it’s more in the spirit of a crack prompt. So please, help us out.”
Submissions of 400 words (fiction) or 300-dpi jpg (art) should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 22.
