the past few days i’ve been hearing SO many stories about how us fat folks have to interact with this question. so let’s make a zine!
deadline: march 15th
this is a fat-positive zine. i encourage you to explore whatever complicated feelings you may have/had about receiving this question or similar, but the ultimate goal is to explore this fucked up dialogue from a fat-positive perspective.
please submit only if you identify as fat (or some type of synonym for that).
i encourage submissions in a variety of forms! this includes prose, rants, poetry, artwork, etc.
submissions can be sad or funny or angry or anything!
work can be personal accounts, fictional, theory based, a mixture of all of these, whatever i really don’t care as long as it’s on theme (hint my personal faves are personal accounts that integrate analysis)
length is not super important to me either, but let’s say if we’re talking a regular typed page, minimum a quarter page and maximum 3-4 pages (really, more or less depending on the format and just like, how much you feel like writing. idk, follow your heart)
don’t include trigger warnings in your submissions because i’m going to add tw’s to each piece in a standard format after it’s all laid out
include with your submission the name you’d like to be credited with (and anything else you want in there, like your email/url)
