Call for Submissions: Headcanons

Call for Submissions

We would like to invite any and all current college students or those who have graduated in the past year who identify on the asexual and/or aromantic spectrum to write a short reflection on the topic, “Headcanons.” This is intended to be low-stress – you are not expected to write an entire blog post. Instead, we will create a single post combining the received submissions showing the diversity of perspectives present within our community. Your submission can be up to 300 words or another form of media such as a drawing.


How to submit

Please submit your written response to this form: If you want to submit another form of media, please email it to and note your college. The deadline for submissions is September 7, and the submissions will be posted anonymously on September 8.



The following are meant to give you ideas for what you can write about, but you are not limited to these prompts! The topic is meant to be broad, so feel free to write about whatever you are inspired to write about.


  • Do you have a favorite character who is canonically ace and/or aro?
  • Do you have a favorite character who you headcanon as ace and/or aro?
  • What do you want to see in ace/aro representation? What do you not want to see?
  • Has there been an ace reading of a character that was particularly impactful for you?
