    Call for Submissions: All In Your Head Issue 8: To The Bone

    [Image Description: drawing of a skeleton arching their back and tilting head backward. Text reads: call for submissions. Issue #8: To The Bone”]

    Call for Submissions!

    All in Your Head is a queer/feminist traditional cut-and-paste style zine with a focus on LGBTQIA neurodivergent and disabled activists, zinesters, artists, and authors, sponsored by GlitterWurst Zine Distro. Our zine operates on the following *principles:

    1.) social inequality and injustice exists [racism, classism, ableism, heterosexism, cissexism to name a few];
    2.) disability, neurodiversity can be understood as a viable form of human difference that intersects with/is shaped by systems of dominance;
    3.) claims that there is a “normal” bodymind can have damaging and harmful effects (physically/emotionally/spiritually) and are partly shaped by current social/cultural values and white western colonial histories;
    4.) neuroqueer and disabled people must navigate cultural taboos, move among complex institutions and systems of care and negotiate conflicting ideas of “wellness/illness,“ “silence/disclosure,” “visibility/invisibility;” “dis/ability” and more
    5.) most importantly, our stories matter. (*this list is by no means exhaustive)

    We are seeking submissions for issue #8 of All in Your Head: TO THE BONE: OUR QUEER CRIP BODIES, OURSELVES. We accept many kinds of submissions including but not limited to: essays, short stories, poems, personal narratives, manifestos, rants, drawings, doodles, illustrations, photography, collage, book or movie reviews (related to the theme), song lyrics, playlists, short plays/monologues and more! We resist the notion that there is such as thing as a “good writer/good artist” and seek to dismantle, critique, and challenge that “good writing/good art” means from a queer, disabled, neurodivergent perspective.

    Some possible topics for TO THE BONE may include:
    -Reclaiming and living in our bodies which exist at the intersections of gender, sexuality, race, class, disability, size, and a multitude of other differences.
    -Visceral knowing, alternative modes of thinking, perceiving, feeling via a queer crip, neuroqueer bodymind.
    -Queer disabled engagements with artistic or spiritual bodily movement and practice such as: dance, yoga, theater, slam poetry, film, singing (and others!).
    -Critiques of and engagements with the notion of “transcending disability.”
    -Explorations of the mindbody split trough the lens of disability.
    -Analyses of disability, passing, and embodiment.
    -The rhetoric of “loss” and disabled embodiment (i.e.: “sight loss,” “loss of limbs”).
    -Queer disability, pleasure, body erotics.

    *Deadline: February 28th, 2018
    *Send submission and bio to: allinyourheadzine@gmail.com
    *Please limit your submissions to approximately 1500 words and/or send high quality images of your artwork/photography. *We enthusiastically welcome and prioritize submissions by queer, trans, and disabled IPOC.

    All contributors will receive a free copy in the mail!
