"Their voices came, distant and distorted, as if I’d been plunged underwater and they were speaking to me from far above, the words lost to the waves of confusion, then creeping comprehension, as they rocked my whole world off its axis." ~ Excerpt from Photographic Memories (Acidic Flashbacks) by Lara Margaret Marjerrison

We are an anti-colonialist and anti-racist publication. We are feminist, 2SLGBTQIA+ allied, and sex-positive. We are consumer/survivors. We are all mad here.

grief & loss & love & sex
When Lara Margaret Marjerrison’s eldest sister died by suicide her world was rocked off its axis.In an effort to reconcile the irreconcilable, she turned to her creative outlets: painting and poetry. In surrendering fully to her creative process, she found a way to turn her broken heart into art. What remains is a beautiful guidebook to grief and finding life and magic again in the forever-changed landscape.
Midlife on Fire
Midlife on Fire is a nonfiction anthology presented by The GLOW Project (Glorious Ladies of Writing) to showcase the ways in which women during midlife are unapologetically kicking ass.
This anthology showcases stories from writers who experience this potentially tumultuous part of their lives as a reordering, maybe a reckoning, and always as a rebirth as vital voices in the dialogue of life, love, and art.
