to all the femmes grieving family; grieving fertility: i see you.
the pain in your hearts ache with the rhythm of the pain in mine.
what i crave knowing is:
how do you survive?
how do you grieve?
how do you connect and thrive?
what magic did you weave to craft family in renewed and revolutionary ways?
this zine will be released on mother's day May 14th, 2017 and submissions are due April 30th. no late submissions will be reviewed. you can submit your genius here:
a maximum of 20 submissions will be chosen for the zine. the creators of the chosen submissions will share 40% of the profits from the project. another 10% of the profits will be donated to a community group, that does work to support parents in marginalized communities. the group we donate to will be chosen by the contributors, through a vote.
the zine will favour publishing a wide range of mediums: poetry, essay, short stories, music, visual art, tarot spreads, recipes, spells....
to get a sense of the balance i'm looking to create you can download the most recent zine i curated: we believe you: femmes surviving toxic masculinity
a preference towards a diversity in representation will be favoured in this project with a desire to publish the work of BIPOC folks especially, though femmes of all life experiences are encouraged to submit.
