New tumblr… submit!
Y’all better start following http://comingoutcrazy.tumblr.com/ because with the help of you and lots of other folks, I am going to start making some awesome things happen there very soon.
EONS ago I gathered submissions for a zine I was going to put together called “Coming Out Crazy”. That was over a year and a half ago and far too much of my own shit has gotten in the way of me actually doing this work… but no more! For a long list of reasons I’ve turned my zine project into a tumblr instead (such as accessibility, being able to make it an ongoing project that can generate dialogue rather than a finished product).
So, since this is going to be ongoing, you can submit! No deadlines! Hurray!
Here is the original project description….
Coming Out Crazy is a
zinetumblr for self-love, fighting ableism, and breaking the silence around ‘disordered’ minds and mental health issues.
We are seeking written (personal narratives/rants/poetry/etc) and visual arts (comics, photographs, illustrations..) submissions about your experiences with mental health issues.
In particular, we are looking for submissions about:
- Personal narratives
- How your mental health affects and/or is affected by other aspects of your identity and social position
- Medicalization of mental health and encounters with health care professionals
- Stigma and silencing
- Mental health ‘coming out’ stories
- Self-love and support
Please email submissions to email@example.com. Please specify under which name the work should be published.
Please forward widely!
