Open Submission for Issue 2



Hi. This I the photo from the back cover of the first issue of Townies. I love it because I took it on a disposable camera when I was in the 3rd grade, but I still really love it now and it makes me feel deeply connected to the child I was then, as well as where I was when I took it (home). I’m so happy that I was able to put together this zine and also so grateful for the interactions I’ve had with so many beautiful people of all ages and backgrounds about growing up “different” in small towns, whether they manifested in heartfelt conversations or just wise, knowing looks. Taking on this project has been really valuable to me, but it’s also not about me. More than anything I want to give a voice and a community for everyone who thought they were alone, both then and now. All of which is to say that I would really love for anyone who relates to the message of Townies (and I know so many of you do!) to share your stories and experiences with me so that I can share them with the 🌍. Previously I stated that submissions for the 2nd issue closed on Nov. 5, but I’m leaving them open on a rolling basis, at least until I have enough to put together the second issue. Im so excited with what I have so far, and I’m even more pumped to keep going but I really need your help to make something beautiful and meaningful. I want so badly to hear from you and spread our collective light!💕🌻🏠🌠
