We here at Bizarro Central support being supportive, and you can too by reading/writing/buying the following.
Calling all women who are nasty! Seeking radical non-fiction essays that provide crucial commentary on what it’s like to be a woman today. Bold stories from fierce women who are not ashamed of who they are and what they do. Detailed journeys about coming to terms and embracing your sexuality, your body, yourself. Being so comfortable in your skin, you sometimes strike fear in the hearts of those who do not understand. Tell me a story you think needs to be heard; a story only you can tell. Because space is limited, I’m looking for the strongest piece you’ve got. Submissions are open to any female-identifying person. Queer, trans, and women of color are strongly encouraged to send something in.

IN THE RIVER, a surprise release from Jeremy Robert Johnson and Lazy Fascist Books. 100% of the first month proceeds being donated to Portland Homeless Family Solutions to aid them in the difficult work of helping families with children find safety and security during times of struggle.
An intensely moving tale of survival and madness along the river’s edge. A father and son fishing lesson become a nightmarish voyage to the sea in this visionary testament to the lengths we will go for those we love.
