I'm starting work (at last) on the fifth issue of my zine Journeyman, and I'd welcome any material people would like to contribute. After a couple of slightly more specialised issues, I'm returning to the traditional analogue cut, paste and copy style of my first couple of issues, and I'd welcome contributions around the following themes:

  • travel stories
  • creative uses of old/obsolete technology
  • photography, especially analogue/lofi/toy camera stuff
  • poetry and short stories
  • book, film, music, zine or other art reviews
  • making things - food, art, crafts, clothes etc.

Contact me at losborne74@gmail.com if you think you can help me out. :)

This is a call for submissions for Dairy River volume 12, titled SIGNS.  Who's in?  Obviously, pieces on various aspects of actual signage are welcome.  Also welcome are pieces on signs or sign systems more broadly (e.g. semiotics, jargon, alphabets, codes, semaphore).  Also welcome are pieces about the film SIGNS (probably obligatory).  Also welcome are pieces on basically anything, related to signs or not.  
And as always, we accept all media -- articles, drawings, photos, songs, videos.  The less amenable to publication the better.  Smells.  Abstract ideas irreducible to words.  
Deadline is negotiable.  Email dairyriver [at] gmail.com if interested.  Thanks!!!!

I am ALSO accepting submissions for a second theme for We'll Never Have Paris 12:  "You got what you wanted now leave".  This theme is specifically stories for those who lived in NYC and then moved away, or, lived in a similar large city and then moved elsewhere.  Nonfiction memoir submissions, only.

Hi, my friend and I are putting together a zine around the idea of collaboration, hopefully in time for some summer fairs.

The idea is to either write a story which someone else will illustrate or to make an illustration which someone will will respond to with writing. If you want to get involved , please email me at  nualacmurphy@yahoo.co.uk. If you're sending images please can they be A5, black and white, 300dpi, if it's text 500-1000w word limit. If you want something to respond to please send examples of your work and a request or an image/text which we can discuss. Thanks x

Deadline: May 31st

just a final shoutout, submissions deadline coming to a close:

More Bodies, More Anger is a free zine that's composed of submissions from independent writers and artists.

Right now, this is experimental in nature and we're looking for submissions of poetry, comics, photographs, essays, short stories, drawings, or whatever.

We compile the submissions in a free zine, which can be downloaded online.   Print it out, leave a few somewhere, and share it with friends.


Submit something by June 10th to see it published in the first issue of More Bodies, More Anger, available June 30th, 2014.

Hello! My zine THE COLLAR TONES is looking for submissions for issue #6: Daydreaming. I'm looking for anyone who would be willing to do anything at all that pertains to the theme. This could mean any type of writing, photo sets, stories, or any art in general. Please email/message me if this topic interests you at all. I would love for more zinesters to contribute to my zine because it has been a majorly independent venture so far. Please contact me soon as the issue will be released in late May. Thanks! :)
