MJ Tribute Anthology
literary. thoughtful. intelligent.
August 29, 2009
editor Lorette C. Luzajic
Eulogies, poems, short stories, theories, thoughtful inquiries, what Michael Jackson meant to you, essays. No dead pedophile jokes. I don’t shy away from difficult subjects but I expect intelligent inquiry and reflection. Michael’s music, legend, symbolism, spirituality, cultural significance, psychology, history and more. Be creative. Be emotional. Be smart. What does MJ’s fame say about our culture? Why was he the one? Why did society turn on him, and then turn right back at death? What does fame do to a person? How does celebrity serve us in everyday life? Does Michael’s reclusive nature separate him from the superstar mask? What does plastic surgery or addiction mean? Contrast Michael to other celebrities, focus on his work and talk about one song or video and what’s inside it, or address how his life or death made you feel personally and why.
This is a labour of love, so I cannot pay you. You will be fully credited for your piece, if chosen, with a bio paragraph and links to your websites or other contact info that you prefer.
Thanks so much.
