Good morning fellas:*
The wonderful Mariah Huehner (@tiredfairy) has come up with an incredible idea. It’s called “MONSTROUS”, and it’s going to focus on “The relationship between girls/women and their bodies through the lens of storytelling in different mediums and genres.”
[Please reblog to get the word out!]
Project type: collection/anthology
Looking for: Prose/comics/poems/art
Genre: fiction (horror, sci-fi, fantasy, etc), auto-bio, non-fiction
Open to: contributors of any age and gender, on the general theme of “body image & girls/women”.
Purpose: Let girls/women know they are not alone when they struggle with their body and our narrowly defined, “beauty” obsessed culture. Positive overall message, but, the stories themselves can be in any genre and be difficult/upsetting. Focus is on being meaningful explorations of theme.
Stories can be about: Any body image related topics, from eating disorders to self-harm to sexual identity. Not limited to these topics, so stories will be evaluated individually.

I hid some of these in plain sight around the residency where I’m at.
…Like next to other signs that say things like “Attention Fellows: This refrigerator will be cleaned out every MONDAY!”
