Self-care brings together the voices of 11 writers who, starting from their situation as minoritized people, examine different aspects of self-care. Resolutely political, this collective work of fiction texts (poetry, stories, short stories and hybrid texts) thinks about affect, defense mechanisms, obsessions, impulses, melancholy, chronic pain or anxiety as privileged ways to approach all the ways of taking care of oneself, whether they are new age ancestral, individualistic, solidarity-based or (anti) capitalist. Without neglecting the sheet masks and the eye patches, these women meditate, do yoga, practice complex sexuality, are politically engaged and, most importantly, write. Their texts have such a sense of urgency that they prove that self-care of socially marginalized people is always invested with a larger quest: for them, self-care is also about repairing and recreating themselves collectively.

With essays by Jennifer Bélanger, Antoine Charbonneau-Demers, Caroline Dawson, Marie-Claude Garneau, Marie-Andrée Gill, Zishad Lak, Kama La Mackerel, Pierre-Luc Landry, Éric LeBlanc, Karine Rosso and Ouanessa Younsi. Edited by Nicholas Dawson.
