HEALTHY BOY is a new online literary zine that aims to showcase the work of artists and writers working in minimum wage jobs.  We're looking for written and visual arts by anyone working in a minimum wage job, whether that be in hospitality, retail, supermarkets, bar work, or any other form of work we haven't listed.



We at HEALTHY BOY know how much energy it can take to produce art after a long day flipping burgers or cleaning out toilets, so that's why we've created a space to celebrate your work.  We want this zine to capture the essence of working in minimum wage jobs, whatever that means to you.  Check out our Submissions page for the theme.
