submissions are open for vol 3
9.14.23 - 10.14.23

I am asking you, my community, to submit a piece of art, writing, and/or expression that is related to grief. 

Your grief expression can be about the loss of a beloved, life before COVID-19, climate change, violence, someone you used to be, the loss of a pet, perinatal loss (miscarriage, abortion, stillbirth), the loss of a parent, a home lost, a life change, loss of a relationship, a diagnosis... etc.

This is a voice to grief. What is it like to grieve? What does your body feel like in grief? Who has helped you in your grief? What/Who are you actively grieving? What has grief taught you? Play into the magic of creative expression!
