[Volume 3 Call for Submissions] CLOSED
Deadline: March 31, 2022
Aging in place refers to living in one’s home safely and independently for as long as you desire and are able.
For Volume 3, we invite you to join us in exploring what it means to “Age in Place.” Aging can be understood as maturing, evolving, growing, or even witnessing a passage of time, as it is about becoming older. So then, what does it mean to “age” in one’s place—geographically and relationally—and to accept “aging?” How do you perceive yourself physically as you do? What kinds of support, services, and structures would you need and want to live comfortably in your home in the future? What would integrated community care look like in practice right now as we plan for our future selves and with others?
Share with us your stories, art, or music about what it would mean for you and your loved ones to age in place and what would make that possible.
We encourage Korean women across the spectrum of experiences to share their submissions. Korean refers to anyone who identifies with this ethnicity, including those of mixed heritage and any adoption or citizenship status. Women include anyone who identifies with the gender identity of “female.”
You don’t have to be an artist to submit! We welcome everyone in all sorts of careers and life stages. Given our mission to expand our understanding of Korean experiences, we especially encourage submissions from members of different parts of the Korean community, including people with disabilities, across generations, from the LGBTQ2+ community, and who identify with other marginalized groups.
We only accept pieces in English and/or Korean.
All submissions will be notified of selection by May. Part 1 of Volume 3 will be released in August 2022, and Part 2 in the fall of 2022.
Please refer to our submission guidelines and publication rates below.
