Stuck in the Middle - Issue 2 - Love & Loss
Publisher: Stuck in the Middle (2020)
Frequently, we see the ideas of love and loss coexist. On their own, one might seem positive, while the other negative. But we asked our contributors to strip away those connotations and ponder: what experiences, interactions and people have shaped the way you perceive those ideas? Have you experienced a loss that was better for you than it was bad? A love that was more detrimental than uplifting? In your life, how have your interactions with others shaped your understanding of either idea, or the relationship between both? This zine explores the complicated relationship between love and loss through a variety of mediums.
Stuck in the Middle is a collaborative zine made by young adults, ages 18-35, who live in the Midwest or formerly lived here. This 37-page issue is in black & white and includes a collection of writing, art and photography. We publish three zines per year that touch on broad themes relating to youth, identity, growth and life in the Midwest.
