This Isn’t Even My Final Form is an annual showcase for trans, nonbinary, intersex, and genderqueer people to express emotional truths to a receptive audience. Interested allies and members of the community alike can explore some of the different ways to experience life in a world where gender isn’t always black and white.
This showcase is open for anyone to apply to be a part of – you don’t have to be a member of any of our groups, or have ever been involved with OmniArts before to take part.
There are two ways to get involved as an artist:
And you can absolutely apply to be both!
Our goal for this show is to bring the realities of being trans, nonbinary, intersex, or/and genderqueer in the current political, economic, and environmental landscape to a visual medium. However bleak the current moment is, we also encourage pieces that reflect our joy, love, resilience, and beauty.
The submission, editing, rehearsal, and presentation process will include several points at which the authors and actors can collaborate with each other and also the community at large.
All proceeds of the 2022 show will be donated to the Transgender Law Center (link opens in new tab), and authors and performers will be given the opportunity to share their personal fundraising links during the show.
Submit Your Writing
We are currently asking for essays and monologues to be submitted for consideration for our upcoming Dec 2022 showcase!
Submissions should be no more than 1500 words and address a topic regarding the author’s unique experience around or related gender, with any stage direction included not impacting the total word count. We are only accepting work from trans, nonbinary, intersex, and genderqueer authors, and specifically encourage BIPOC and disabled trans, nonbinary, intersex, and genderqueer authors to submit. All essays and monologues submitted will be performed by either a trans/nonbinary/intersex/genderqueer actor or by the writer themselves.
Please email your submissions of no more than 1500 words along with a brief bio to email@example.com by midnight PST on Sun 25th Sept 2022 (which is 8am BST on Mon 26th Sept 2022). Documents should be saved in .docx or .dot format and should exclude the author’s name. Final decisions will be made by Mon 3rd Oct 2022, and any requests for edits will be made shortly after submission, to give writers as much time as possible to revise and resubmit.
This Isn’t Even My Final Form does not retain any rights to pieces submitted. In the event that your piece is accepted elsewhere by a publication that does retain rights to your work, please let us know by sending an email to the above inbox with the name of your piece in the subject line.
Depending on the number of submissions, some pieces may be accepted into future This Isn’t Even My Final Form productions. Authors accepted into later productions will still be welcomed into the TIEMFF community at the time of acceptance, and will be given the opportunity to participate in workshops and rehearsals.
