Call for Writers: Being Plural

Inatri is looking for writers to write about being plural.

If you’re interested, email [email protected].

We want to offer a platform for those who have multiple personalities — regardless of the terminology you use (plural, multiple, Dissociative Identity Disorder, etc) — to write about their experiences with it, and how it affects their day-to-day lives.

We pay writers.

Call for Writers: Living with PTSD

Inatri is looking for writers to write about living with PTSD.

If you’re interested, email [email protected].

There are a lot of people who live with PTSD, whether from abuse, war, or other traumatic experiences. We want to offer a platform for people to discuss how PTSD affects their day-to-day life, and how they cope with it (or attempt to do so), and how successful they are in doing so. PTSD can affect people in many different ways, so we want to get multiple people to discuss it.

Call for Writers/Researchers: Tracking Trump

Inatri is currently looking for people to write about, or gather information about, all of the fucked up things the Trump administration is doing. This would be recurring, with weekly articles.

We want 2-3 people working on this, rotating weekly, to avoid anyone burning out on it.

The goal of this is to create a chronological archive of the rise of fascism and the revocation of the rights of US citizens. This will be done by writing overviews that link to a collection preexisting articles written by other publications and newspapers.

If you’re interested, email [email protected].

This is paid work.

Call for Writers/Interviewees: AD(H)D Management

Inatri is currently looking for people to write or be interviewed about managing AD(H)D. We don’t care whether you have a professional diagnosis or not.

If you’re interested, email [email protected]!

I know a lot of people struggle with this, and I feel like having information on a variety of approaches could help people find things that help them specifically. Given that, I’m going to write an article about how I manage it, and I want to have other articles about how other people do so.

What should I do if I can’t tell someone’s gender?

Not give a shit.

Glad I could clear that up for you.

 

Also, you shouldn’t really be assuming gender anyway, because it’s literally impossible to always accurately guess it. There’s also the problem where gender and pronouns aren’t directly tied, and what you probably want to know is what pronouns to use.

Remember: If you don’t know someone’s pronouns, it’s usually safe to use singular they. However, if you can ask or they tell you, only use the pronouns they say to — to use anything but what they want you to is just fucking rude.
