VOLUME 7: COMING OF AGE
For our upcoming next issue, we are seeking work that reflects on the period in a person's life as they transition from childhood and become an adult. What does this moment look like to you—a loss of innocence, discovering something about sexuality, a different kind of challenge faced, or something else entirely? How does the experience differ across time, place, and gender identities? Why is there so much fascination of and art inspired by it? We are asking potential contributors to consider these questions as they reach back into the sometimes funny, embarrassing, and strange vault of teenage years to help us curate a thoughtful and thought-provoking issue on the topic.
