Call for Submissions: No Missing Pieces Zine #2

This is a call for submissions for issue number 2 of No Missing Pieces Zine. No Missing Pieces is an online and paper magazine and media project by autistic people. 

Anyone who identifies as autistic, from all corners and areas of the spectrum, is very welcome and encouraged to share things for this project. 

I very much encourage stuff from autistic people whose life experiences may not be shared enough because: you are mostly or totally nonverbal or nonspeaking, you need more help with daily living tasks (what that means is up to you), you live in an institution, you have other disabilities in addition to being autistic, you’re a person of color, you are poor or homeless, you get sidelined because of your gender (if any), or your sexual or romantic orientation (if any), or you are or have been incarcerated, or you live in a rural area or small town, and so on in any combination. 

Note: Neurotypical people should not contribute to this project on their own — but they can help an autistic person submit something, and they can help also by sharing this, and reading and sharing the final project. Thanks.

More Notes: 1) If you are writing something, please use simpler language, not academic language, otherwise I and a lot of other people won’t understand you.

2) All the editing done for this project is accessibility-focused (image descriptions, transcriptions, trigger warnings, etc.) Standard editing isn’t done.


(For Online or On Paper) This Project Needs:

Art / Craft works (drawings, comics, postcard art, mixed media, digital art, photography, paintings, fabric arts, fashion, collage, sketches, sculptures and models, etc.) Please include an image description or keywords. Art for the paper version should fit on 8.5 x 11 size paper.

Audio / Video. Please warn if there is loud noise or music, brightness, or shaky, flashing, or quickly-moving lights or images. Please try to avoid autoplay. Audio / Video will need to be captioned and/or transcribed. (I can get help with this if needed.)

Writing (prose, journal entries, short fiction, rants, poetry, song lyrics, lists, etc.). Please include trigger / content warnings if they apply. Please use a print style font (not cursive), and a standard size font (12 or 14 point is usually standard) if possible. A maximum of 5 pages is preferred for the paper zine so that there is more space for other people.

Other Things You Can Think Of???

Special Note: Contributor bios are totally optional. An example is something like Name (real name, fake name, screen name, anonymous), age, gender pronouns, general location, hobbies or something you want to share about yourself, where people could find more of your work / how people could contact you.  


“Soft” Deadline: Sunday, June 14, 2015

Final Deadline: To Be Determined

If you’d like to hear it // I can sing it for you is an independent zine seeking submissions for Issue #001! This zine is focused on memory loss, and the negotiation of an aging and pathological body/brain and a “forgetful” self in an unaccommodating world, as well as accounts of chronic illness and the end-of-life experiences of an aging self.

We are seeking writings (300-500 words), photos, and artwork from folks in all of life’s ages and stages. This work 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, progressive politics, and academic thought.

Please email agingzine@gmail.com with questions!

howdy,  i'm the dad of a ASD kiddo, looking to read some zines on the issue. also would not mind contributing if anyone is looking.

@Katherine, Yes, I would love to check out a copy. I run a distro-- would you be open to having this zine considered for the distro? You would not necessarily need to make more copies yourself if that was not convenient. We can talk more by private message-- I'll send you my mailing address. Thanks!

@zeraph dylan: I know your comment was nearly a year ago, but if you're still here:

I wrote a zine called 'adventures in unreality' about 5 years ago, which was mainly about the social cues that I'd only just discovered to exist. I tried to explain them in a way that mad sense to me as an autistic person. If you're interested, I can find a copy and mail it to you.

Best,

K

I'm looking for some great zines on ability, disability, etc., oppression and privilege associated with neurodiversity, zines from folks on the autistic spectrum, etc.

Any recommendations?

Thanks!
