Jennifer L. Knox is curating this round.

Updated call for essays:

The subject, Chick Flix, is wide open. You can take it from a Gone with the Wind angle, to Gaslight, to Gas, Food & Lodging, to Gidget (me), to The Good Girl, through Gena Rowlands and out the other side of Looking for Mr. Goodbar. I was going to declare one chick per flick, but if two people cover Heathers or Pretty Woman, it’s not going to retread any ground. Nevertheless, I'll be posting a sign up sheet soon.

You can write a 50 word punch in the face, or a 5,000 scholarly treatise. That's why there are scroll bars. Just don’t be a bore.

The deadline is December 1.

Essays should be uploaded to Google Drive and shared with delirioushem1 [at] gmail [dot] com (preferred), or emailed as a .doc or .rtf to that address.

Please include links to film stills, YouTube clips, or other illustrations/supporting materials you'd like to appear with your piece.

Direct questions Jennifer or to delirioushem1 [at] gmail [dot] com.
