The Bitchin' Kitsch

When we started The B'K eleven years ago, our one goal was to provide an outlet for creators who were generally overlooked. This publication seeks to provide inclusion and equity to creators who have been shut out from traditional publications. We value inclusivity and diverse perspectives and believe the only way to do it right is with #OwnVoices.

Submit your work to All My Relations, Volume 4

All My Relations Volume 4 is an art and lit, online and printed magazine, exploring the themes of disability and accessibility. This volume is open to disabled creatives only, in consideration of the theme.

We are not looking for graphic or traumatic stories or dark fictional pieces written for shock value. We do not require that you center your or your relations’ traumas. And we are not interested in the single story of harm and suffering.

We are looking for honest pieces reflecting on your feelings of disability and accessibility, pieces exploring the myriad of feelings that come from navigating disability in an ableist world or being in community with other disabled folks, pieces exploring how it feels not to have access and to have your access needs met, musings on alternate universes where accessibility is always considered, reflections on a utopian accessible future, etc. We are looking for pieces that honor your experience, honor your journey, imagine the absence of otherization, and/or aid in communal healing.

Land Back

I work on the occupied ancestral and traditional lands of the Hinóno'éi-no' (Arapaho), Tsétséhéståhese (Cheyenne), Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ̱ (Ute), and the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ (Seven Council Fires) peoples. In offering this land acknowledgment, I also acknowledge the state-sanctioned acts of genocide against the original inhabitants of this area and the challenges Indigenous communities face today as a result of colonization. I affirm Indigenous sovereignty, history, knowledge, and experiences. I also pledge to support the Land Back movement and reparations in any way that I can until such time that the land is ceded to its rightful stewards.
