About this submission

SUPER follows a young woman on antidepressants who begins to experience super powers.

Taken from a personal perspective of therapy and considering medication, I wanted to discuss the stigma and taboo around antidepressants and also create an open and honest dialogue about someone choosing to continue on them. By placing this in the world of a girl obsessed with comics, I wanted to jar this imagery and world with her reality as she becomes a hero of her own narrative.

I approach writing with a humanistic approach - addressing social stigmas and how everyday characters encounter extraordinary and emotional challenges.
