Pentimento: A New Magazine for the Disability Community, You're Invited!
Managing Editor's Note: From our friends at NAA:
NAA is launching a new literary magazine for the disabilty community - Pentimento.
The magazine cover will feature artwork by a disabled child or young adult. Each issue will include a section devoted to writing by readers on various topics, an unedited first-person perspective piece, essays, poetry, art, photographs and disability-related quotes.
Submissions may be by a disabled individual or an individual who is part of the community such as a family member, educator, therapist, etc. Submissions by an individual who is not disabled but part of the community must have a disability-related theme.
We are seeking artwork by a child or young adult for the cover and writing by a child or young adult for a section titled "Uncut". The first two topics for writing by readers are "Taking A Chance" and "Hope". Submissions can be mailed or emailed via links on the website.
