In this zine, Coin-Operated Press is creating a space for our chronically iconic zinesters to share their stories of living with a chronic health issue.
Rest your weary body, unpack your favourite stim toy, take your meds and submit to our zine with: an essay of your tips for coping mechanisms, tips and tricks for our fellow chronic illers, a photo-essay showing us the struggles of everyday living, a short story written from the perspective of a disabled character, your diagnosis horror stories, a poster raising awareness of your issue, your experiences of getting help in the system, a comic-strip of the joy you find in your disability, or any other chronically iconic work that you would like to create for our zine!
We are looking for: articles, illustrations, short stories, zine excerpts, photography, poetry, artwork of any medium, fanfiction, guides, posters, flyers, short essays, recipes, comic-strips, reviews, informationals, collages, and anything else you can put your imagination to.
The finished zine will be A5 in size and printed in full colour.
Send us your submissions by filling in this Google form.
Emailed submissions will not be accepted.
The deadline is midnight BST on Friday 25th March 2022.
