Hi. I posted a short time ago about looking for submissions for a book and just wanted to explain more about the project. My friend and I are recovering self-injurers looking to make a book that shows different representations of self-injury–like art and writing, and basically whatever you can think of! What we noticed was that people view it in so differently it is hard to define it in one way. So, we want this book to be about what injuring means and how to recover, get help, etc. Believe me, I know it can be hard to speak out about it, but this is a safe way to do so. And it might be helpful to be part of a big project like the book. If you’re interested, send an email to selfinjurybook@hotmail.com. My friend and I can answer any questions you might have. Also, spread the word to anyone who you think might want to submit a piece (it’s hard to reach everyone via the internet).

Hope to hear from you!
