Mend My Dress Press is currently working with the editors of When Language Runs Dry Zine on a book length anthology centered around chronic pain. The collection will include the first 4 issues of the zine, plus new material. The book includes essays, poetry and comics on identity, invisibility, capitalism, mental health, care-giving, support, self-care and hopefulness as they relate to the experience of chronic pain. 

We are currently looking for proposals for cover art for the book. Proposals should include the following: 

1) A short description of how your idea reflects chronic pain and how your proposed visual articulates the link between chronic pain and identity, invisibility, mental health, support, self-care or subjects not listed.

2) A rough sketch at 6x9 of a concept for the front cover (place holders for text as the title font has been previously selected). 

3) A link to your portfolio page/previous work or attachments of previous work if possible.

Chosen artist may receive a stipend for completed cover art.

Submissions must be received by May 31st. 

Submission will be chosen by June 30th, at which point we will notify the artist to start working out details. We strongly encourage those who live with chronic pain or care for people with chronic pain to submit proposals. Authors and artists who have been included in previous issues of When Language Runs Dry also encouraged to submit proposals.

  1. Greetings from Virginia, I was wondering if your still looking for cover art? I ran across your site while looking for information on Chronic pain as there are not that many sites. I am an artist as well, is why I was wondering about the cover art. Thanks so much for your time.
