In Each Other’s Hands: Living Resilience
Submissions due: January 15
For the March 2021 issue, the editorial team invites explorations in essays, poetry, and images about building resilience out of personal and collective trauma, especially that experienced by BIPOC, women, LGBTQ2 people, people with limited income, and people with disabilities. We acknowledge that our current socio-economic-political system traumatizes almost everyone who lives within it, and that trauma impacts everything in our lives: our self-worth, our sense of safety and agency, and our interpersonal relationships, as well as affecting parenting, educational, and policing practices, relationships among various groups of people, and our relationship with the entire natural world.
So how do we heal our individual, collective, intergenerational, and historical trauma? How do we nurture resilience in ourselves and our institutions for a more just, peaceful, and liveable world, drawing on our deep interconnections within Earth’s web of life? We invite articles, poetry, and images exploring these and related questions.
Please submit your contribution by January 15 to [email protected], along with a >100 word biographical sketch and your photo. If your contribution is accepted, we’ll also ask for an audio recording of your text and a description of any images for accessibility.
