Opportunities: Itch Journal Submission Deadline: September 15th, 2012

itch would like to get to know their readers a bit more. It seems time. “As much as we hide it, we are of two minds: one that fends for our survival and instincts to eat, sex, and poo; and the other that suppresses hunger, anger, our impulses and desires to howl in public, onstage, at one another – in an effort to save face, ward off embarrassment, and maintain social graces.

Let’s shut down, sacrifice, or otherwise eat the “suppress and control” mindset and sit in the juicy cavern of...

The Academia de los Nocturnos (Academy of the Night Revelers), which emerged in in Valencia, Spain, in the 1590s, was one of the first artistic social gatherings in the form of the soirée. Part a secretive fraternity meeting late at night, part a gathering of wannabe poets, the academy held literary contests on a regular basis and became a support group for the then emerging modern...
