Playing with Trauma 
Submissions due by February 12

Trauma and the struggles that we go through often serve as our inspiration or the fuel to our fires. What is this trauma that we have been through and that often haunts us 'till this very day? However, the flip-side to trauma is healing. We would also like to focus on how we healed through this trauma, if we have at all, as we all have our own personal forms of more.
