An aside: the short story in Capricious, ‘Glitter and Leaf Litter’, is the piece I’m developing into a full length YA verse novel, thanks to my Wheeler Centre Hot Desk Fellowship. I love these wonderful non-binary characters so so much 🌈
Have a read of my new poem about a cursed suburban rental in the latest Vulture Bones, a speculative fiction magazine for trans and enby voices.
I have a short story called ‘Glitter and Leaf Litter’ coming out in the Gender Diverse Pronouns issue of Capricious! SO HAPPY!
It’s a story of two enby teenagers who have sleepovers in an abandoned mansion and the ghostly friends they meet along the way. The story uses they/them pronouns and has: #friendshipgoals, cuddles and spooning, glitter, whimsy, and poetic descriptions. ❤
Also also also: I have a piece in this awesome issue! It’s called ‘Artistic expression beyond the binary’ – and it’s about non-binary creatives and artists.
Come to the launch to pick up your copy, have a drink and say hi to me! 🙂
Last night’s launch of #EnbyLife was a great success! Thank you to the contributors who made the zine possible, and to Vlada at Junky Comics for letting me host the event in her beautiful shop. 💜
Thanks to everyone’s generosity I was able to make a donation to Queensland AIDS Council/QuAC. Their mission is to enable LGBTQI+ people to improve their health and quality of life. If you want to make your own donation, visit their website.
If you couldn’t make it to the launch, there are still copies of #EnbyLife and some badges at Junky Comics. If you’re in Melbourne, I’ll also be sending copies of the zine to Sticky Institute and there’ll be some at the Junky pop up shop at Magic Johnston next month!
There’s also print and digital copies of the zine available at my Etsy shop.
Don’t forget you still have until the end of June to submit to #EnbyLife zine! Send me your art, comics, stories, poems, non-fiction, etc!
Non-binary (enby) people are those of us who don’t fit within Western society’s gender binary (male/female). Our stories are often erased (if even heard at all!). #EnbyLife is a zine about non-binary experiences and stories, with amazing submissions from local and international writers, artists and creatives.
Come to the launch to support non-binary people, local creatives and our beloved Junky Comics!
PS: there will also be an after party for those who want to get their drink on. Location TBA!
If you want to submit to #EnbyLife, have a read of this blog post. Submissions are open until 30 June!
