Performance Text: We are interested in writing related to performance. Play scripts, monologues, texts used in performance, created through performance, or creatively responding to performance are all welcome, as is work that attends closely to movement or spoken language, is meant to generate performance, or that documents or imagines performance. Performance in this context means an engagement with embodied speech as a source of language, as well as the potential for written language to be interpreted through performance. Performance works created as video, audio, or visual pieces can also be submitted in digital formats, however we prefer text over straight documentation of live performance – in other words, submit only recorded media in which the media is a necessary aspect of the performance as conceived, otherwise submit text. Please remember that Requited’s foremost concern, as a literary journal, is that your submission function in this context as text on the page, or as recorded media, with minimal supporting or explanatory information. Works up to three pages (under 5 minutes for recorded media) are ideal for the format, though longer works may be considered. Please send submissions  to: Ira S. Murfin, Performance Text Editor.
