Some themes Issue One has approached are: mental health and productivity, being verbal about your illness, grieving, the limits of self care, cancer, disability, old age and isolation, the stigma of psychosis, gender identity, the hysterical woman in film, Kanye West’s 808s and Heartbreak album… and much more.
We do approach themes that can be triggering. For these we have decided to add a dark red banner on the top corner of the page so you can skip those if you are not up for them on any given day. This issue’s potentially triggering themes are: transmisogyny, disordered eating, suicide, ableism, anxiety, self harm, rape.
Is there a theme you’d like to see labeled? Please let us know!
Kristina Wong – on mental health and the model minority myth
Angela Deane – on ghost photographs, memory and the past
The Coven – on their collective
Kate Zambreno – on the mentally ill woman as a muse for male writers
This issue’s conversation between editors deals with the confusing intersection of capitalist consumption and self care so often promoted in our media.
