    Call for Art and Literary Works

    The Phoenix Project, an exhibit of art and literary works that have
    been created by former cult members, is seeking art, musical, and
    literary submissions for the upcoming annual conference of the
    International Cultic Studies Association, scheduled for July 5 -7,
    2012, in Montreal.

    If you are a former member of a cult or high demand organization, we
    invite you to present your work (in French or English), related to
    your experiences while in your group or during your recovery, at the
    fifth Phoenix Project Exhibit of ex-member artwork. We are looking for
    works that illustrate the world of the cult survivor—including the
    previous group world, healing or recovery, or aspects of the time of
    transition from the cult.

    Creations may be in any art form, including: literary (such as poetry,
    drama, short story, or other writings), music of any kind, dance, and
    the visual arts (such as paintings, drawings, collage, sculpture,
    fiber arts, photography, film, video, or multi-media).

    If desired, your work may be presented anonymously, or through another

    The FINAL DATE FOR ACCEPTANCE to this exhibit is MAY 31. We hope to
    hear from you soon!

    Please e-mail Diana Pletts at the Phoenix Project to submit your art,
    literary, or other works at: [email protected].

    The conference is run jointly with Info-Cult/Info-Secte and in
    collaboration with the Université de Montréal, The International
    Centre for Comparative Criminology (ICCC) of the Université de
    Montréal, and l’Association québécoise Plaidoyer-Victimes.

    Diana Pletts, M.A., directs and coordinates The Phoenix Project, which
    provides a time and place for cult survivors to present their cult and
    recovery related artwork. A former member of the Path, a charismatic
    Christian End-Times group, she is working, herself, on the production
    of artwork to express her own group involvement. Diana has spoken on
    cult affiliation at colleges and churches, on the radio, as a speaker
    for Elderhostel, and at Chautauqua Institution. She lives with her
    husband, Dennis, in Maryland, and is Art and Literary Editor for ICSA
    Today. Some Phoenix Project works may be considered for publication
    in ICSA Today. Those interested in participating in The Phoenix
    Project, or in obtaining more information about the Project, are
    invited to e-mail her at [email protected].
