Posthaste is a running feature of Caustic Frolic that offers the space for members of our XE community to engage creatively and critically with the ever-changing challenges of our world. As an interdisciplinary journal invested in social change, we believe deeply in the power of art and thought to address topics such as: the COVID-19 Pandemic, racial tensions and the Black Lives Matter Movement, gender inequity, and so much more. In response to specific events, as well as broader institutional problems, Posthaste will offer prompts that XE writers, artists, and academics can respond to in whatever fashion they choose. We encourage submissions to range in genre, style, and length. Flash stories, poetry, essays, photography, art, films, and more, are all welcome. All submissions should be sent to email@example.com.
We want Posthaste to function as a living document that captures the XE community’s artistic reactions to the world around us. As the title of this feature suggests, we want to see and publish work that is responding to societal issues in real time. Submissions should be raw and charged with emotion, perhaps even a bit messy. Above all, we hope Posthaste fosters continual and purposeful discussion within the XE community. Together, our ideas and voices will be heard.
