Our Caribbean Heritage call is from June 5th to June 17th
RAISING MOTHERS seeks fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry and graphic narratives for our Generations column. This section will explore the unique space that is being a first generation parent. This can mean you and/or your parent(s) was an immigrant or you are a first born in your family in your country of birth. What are your cultural norms? How do they differ from society-at-large? What presents itself in your parenting? Do they differ from your partner if there is one?
THE POLITICAL BODY
RAISING MOTHERS seeks fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry and graphic narratives for The Political Body. What does it means to live in your body as a BIPOC with or without other marginal intersections? What does it mean to parent with this body? How are outside forces (society, our families, government, media) trying to dictate what it means to live how we do? This can also be viewed in shaping how we help our children view themselves.
Especially interested in work from trans WOC, fat WOC, queer WOC, poor/working class WOC, disabled WOC, sex workers or any intersections not mentioned.
