Deadline: 9th May 2022, 10pm
Yes to Life and Artlift are piloting a new magazine by and for people living with and beyond cancer and the professionals who work with them.
We understand that there is no one size fits all when it comes to cancer and want to create a magazine that shares the depth and diversity of the cancer experience.
We are looking for submissions for the pilot edition of Flourish Magazine, which will explore the benefits of an integrative and creative approach to living with cancer, around the theme of Nourish.
