Call for submissions: Death, dying, and undeath

Explore the dark side with Absent Cause
Underground cultures, hidden histories, feminist and queer sexualities, chosen families and radical politics; vampirism, the gothic, horror and the macabre; surviving abuse, coping with mental illness/dangerous gifts, self-harm and suicide.

***************

The theme of the third issue of Absent Cause zine is death, dying, and undeath.

Everybody dies. But in our underground and radical communities we often have very different ways of coping with death than the dominant culture.

What does the prospect of death mean to someone who’s lived through violent abuse? Discrimination? Mental illness?

How does a revolutionary or artist contemplate what their contribution may mean after their death?

How do we express our fears, celebration, anger, and/or desire for death?

Can death be sexy?

Absent Cause welcomes submissions of essays, comix, poetry, short fiction, artwork, photography, recipes, etc. Send to: redguard@gmail.com

The DEADline for Absent Cause #3 is Sept. 1, 2009.
