40.1: Food

We eat for survival, remedy, comfort, adventures, nostalgia, growth, gathering, and love. We consume, crave, feast, forage, fast, share, and struggle. As women, our relationship with food can be casual, blissful, or complicated.

Writers and artists, share with Room your work that tell stories related to food—cooking, farming, hunger, consumption, digestion, eating, and not eating. Editors Kayi Wong and Rose Morris are looking for poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and art that explores food in all its glory and complexity for Room issue 40.1, which will also feature work by Marilyn Dumont. Deadline to submit is July 31.
