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.
