Dear Indigenous Writer

Writing in all its forms is a scary act; it makes us vulnerable and exposes our softest parts to a world not known for its gentleness. But there’s magnificent power in that vulnerability, and it’s deserving of acknowledgment. And I’m filled with such deep joy each time another powerful voice joins the Indigenous literary world. I hope you’ll think of these words as an honoring and a hope for the important work you’re about to undertake.

In both Canada and the US the mainstream literary scene tends to hold up one or two Indigenous writers at a time, while leaving the rest to fend for themselves. It’s important to help one another, to uphold one another’s work, to celebrate successes and grieve losses, to engage in this beautiful struggle together.

To be an Indigenous writer is to be part of a long legacy of struggle and survivance, of determination to speak truth into a world that too often insists on Indigenous silence.

Zines in Indian Country

Monday, March 26, 2018 - 'I'll publish it myself': Native zines In the age when people publish instantly on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, and their own blogs, it might be difficult to see where zines--low-tech, photocopied, self-published magazines--have a place. But they're still around. You might find them laying around at your local coffee shop or alternative bookstore. The zine publisher might print one out and mail it to you. Kayla Shaggy's (Diné and Anishinaabe) zine, "Monstrous," is filled with drawings of monsters. She says the format offers "the freedom to do what you want." Self-publishing something that people can hold in their hands is part of the reason for doing it. We'll talk with Native zine makers about why self-publishing a few copies with limited reach is their favorite way to get their creative work out. NEXT MONDAY!
