Attention writers and artists! This is an open call for submissions for our new project THIS HEART IS HOMEBOUND, a compilation zine on toxic beginnings, non-traditional upbringings, and redefining family. 

The concept for this project is born out of a need expressed by ourselves as well as others in our community, in which we struggle to reconcile the concept of family presented in popular culture with our own "imperfect," non-traditional, or even abusive familial experiences. Moving forward as adults, we also grapple with our own radical notions of what family should be and how to create the support systems that we and our community need. We would like THIS HEART IS HOMEBOUND to be a diverse resource for those of us who are looking for answers to these questions. 

All those who submit to THIS HEART IS HOMEBOUND will receive a free copy of the finished zine!

TOPICS FOR SUBMISSION INCLUDE:
- toxic families (low contact versus no contact, living through abuse, becoming an adult too young, healing relationships, etc.)
- non-traditional upbringings (foster care/adoption experiences, group homes, not being raised by nuclear family, death/incarceration/institutionalization of intimate family members, growing up in cultures/traditions/religions not recognized by the mainstream, etc.)
- redefining family (navigating chosen family, building positive support systems, de-stigmatizing non-mainstream family structures, etc.)
- coping with all of the above

Submissions may include but are not limited to: personal essays, poetry, visual art, comics, non-fiction, etc.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS MIDNIGHT ON OCTOBER 15th.
