NEW YORK (8/1/07) — Nothing But Red, the anthology of literary and visual arts inspired by the impassioned plea of Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon in response to the "honor killing" of 17-year-old Du’a Khalil Aswad, is now accepting submissions. Proceeds from the fan-organized anthology will benefit Equality Now, an international human rights organization.

Although inspired by the tragic death of Dua Khalil, submissions aren’t required to be about her. It could be an essay about honour killings, or a short story about a woman standing up to domestic abuse, or a poem that gives voice to women suffering oppression. We’re looking for work that explores women’s issues and the need for equality. Read Whedon’s original essay and browse this site to get a feel for what we’re going for.

Thanks to ardentdelirium for the heads up.

Who wants to sew these on for me?Collapse )
