 In The Bold Source

The Bold Source Issue #3 is now accepting submissions, this time in response to the theme “Self-care and Healing”.

The Bold Source is a youth-led magazine for young people aged 10 to 25 who live, study, work, and socialise in the City of Brimbank. We aim to foster the creative pursuits of young people and empower them in becoming the narrators of their own stories.

The editorial team for The Bold Source believe that after what the world has experienced over the last two years, it’s important we have a conversation on how young people can better look after their wellbeing. Here is the prompt they came up with:

Self-care is the act of protecting or working on yourself, whether it’s your mental or physical health. Why do you practice self-care? How do you take care of yourself and unwind? Does it look like going out or staying in and having me-time? Or maybe it can be both! Healing is an ongoing journey of finding peace and acceptance within yourself. It’s about learning from your experiences so you can grow. Healing can look different for everyone. What does healing look like for you? How has healing helped you grow?

The editors invite all young people in the West to submit any of the following:

  • Essays
  • Articles
  • Short stories
  • Poetry
  • Drawings
  • Photography
  • Comics
  • And more!

The deadline for submissions is 28 January 2022 11:59 PM.

Details on how to submit are in the submission guidelines here.
