February 19, 2012
By

Submissions of short stories, short creative non-fiction, and art pieces are requested for possible appearance in an academic/scholarly book tentatively entitled  “A Lesson in Doubt: the social and linguistic construction of OCD.” Work of up to five double-spaced pages will be considered. Pieces can be written/created on any aspect of OCD, from a number of perspectives including but not limited to first person accounts/takes from sufferers, family members, doctors or community members, etc. Submissions will be accepted until April 15th, 2012. They will be assessed on their literary/artistic merit and appropriateness given the aims of the book (to raise awareness of the social dimensions of OCD beyond medical diagnosis). Please paste your written submission to the body of an email message and send it to patricia.friedrich@asu.edu. For art, please contact Friedrich first. If your piece is selected, you will have the option of publishing it under your name, a pseudonym, or anonymously. You must be at least 18 years old to send your work. By submitting your text/art, you are acknowledging that it is your original work and that you grant permission for publication/reproduction in the book. Should your work be accepted for publication elsewhere during the process of review, you agree to withdraw your submission. This project has been approved by the IRB office at Arizona State University.
