no pay

We are accepting writing/art submissions for issue #003 of "if you'd like to hear it // i can sing it for you." We are actively seeking writings from folks in all of life’s ages and stages. This zine is centered on intellectual/emotional criticisms and personal experiences of aging, illness, and death from caregivers, patients, and advocates. We are exploring the radical sociologies of aging, caregiving, and aging advocacy through personal experiences, politic, and academic thought.

We are accepting writings (<1000 words) centered around the theme:"These places that are not mine."

Our theme for this issue centers around the spaces and places we design in our minds and our world to make us feel like they are our own; when in fact, they may be anything but. This issue explores amorphous understandings of autonomy, and how our cognitive and built environments contribute to our sense of ownership of our own identities - nursing homes, prisons, illness narratives, sick roles, accessibility.

Submissions due APRIL 20!! No monetary compensation can be offered - all contributors will receive a copy of the completed work.

Please email all submissions to << agingzine@gmail.com >>!
