issue nine: the intimacy issue
This issue is all about intimacy. What does intimacy mean to you? Is it physical; is it sexual; is it the lack of understanding or connection to intimacy; have you lost yours? is it mental; is it communication; connection to the self or others? We want to hear about your relationship to your own intimacy, what it means to you, connection to others, your mind and your body. We encourage work from all genders, ages and life experiences on this important but often taboo topic.
Submissions are now closed.
