Apr 19, 2016

Srviv is a collaborative, anthology style zine. The collector, Jonas, gives their writers a prompt for each issue, and the contributors submit their pieces. In this particular issue, the prompt was, “What gets you out bed every morning?” Some of the writers took the prompt very literally, attributing their need to work, feed their pet, take their morning pee. Other writers took the chance to expand, explaining what emotionally and mentally pulls them to be able to start every day, or keep going every day. I really appreciated the writers who did this. Some mentioned memories of family members or breakups preventing them from getting up and out. Others described the challenges of knowing you have a job to do each and every day and how even if you wanted to stay in your warm, soft bed, you have things to do. So get to them! –Tricia Ramos (Srviv, PO Box 633, Chicago, IL 60690)
