The Birth Project, a print 'zine from Michigan with both regional and national distribution seeks submissions of pregnancy and birth related art, photography, poetry, and writing. Written submissions should be less than 1500 words. Payment is in copies and eternal gratitude. Contributors retain rightst to their work. Submissions can be sent to [email protected]
We are looking for work that is touching, thoughtful, and occasionally funny. Birth stories are welcome. We also are open to stories about birth as a metaphor -- birth of a new parent, birth of a new identity, etc.
The best way to get what we are about is to read the 'zine. Free copies are available at thebirthproject.com. If you feel so inclined, you can subscribe there too.
Deadline for the summer issue is June 15, but we will continue to accept work quarterly. I try to give feedback for anything that we do not use so that you can revise and try again or submit it somewhere else and be more successful.
Stacia -- intrepid mama, midwife, and doula. Changing the world one 'zine at a time.
