How We Relate refers to both how and why we tell stories, and to how our relationships with the people, things, and environments in our lives affect us and our need to tell these stories.
Welcome to Room Magazine
Room to read. Room to write. Room to converse across our many differences. Room is a diverse community of writers, artists, and readers who make space for all women’s voices.
*Women of Colour = non-white women, including trans* and non-binary people
We welcome writing and art about the experience of being racialized, dealing with racial discrimination, grappling with representation, defining one’s identity or identities, lost and reclaimed histories, as well as stories about loss, love, heartbreak, and triumph.
The above list is by no means exhaustive. We invite works that explore a variety of topics, as well as stories that challenge formal or social conventions and norms. Women of colour, the editors of issue 39.1 invite you to share your stories and be heard. Room is listening.
Edited by Christina Cooke and Nailah King.
Deadline: August 9, 2015
We accept submissions of fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and art on any theme on an ongoing basis.
