Eggnog: Pro or Con?

Are you pro eggnog? Do you love the creamy, nutmeg-ed Christmas drink? Do you enjoy your eggnog with rum or whiskey? Do you wish eggnog was a year round libation? Then submit a short (100-500 word) explanation, story, poem, or recipe that describes your love for this holiday drink.

Are you anti-eggnog? Do you hate the white semi-set pudding like drink? Do you wish it was outlawed? Do you have stories of imbibing on eggnog only to be sick? Then submit a short (100-500 word) explanation, story, poem, or recipe that describes your hatred for this holiday drink.

Contributors will receive a complementary copy.

Deadline: 20 December 2013

I posted this a few weeks ago.

I extended the deadline to Jan 1

Soupzine is creating its first submission zine for issue #11. 

The Theme is "Moving Out."

I am moving to a new state yet again, and I wanted to create a zine that shares stories about folks who make the big move. This can be any move: across town, for college, to a new state, for a boyfriend/girlfriend, for love, after a break up, to a new country, for work, etc...

Please share stories, artwork, comics, fiction, non-fiction, poetry...about an experience, advice, misadventures, humor, lesson, wisdom, rants, or abstract thoughts you've had with Moving Out.


Jan 1 deadline 

People whose submissions make it in the zine will receive both a print copy (color cover with b/w pages) and a full color digital PDF.

Zines will be sent out by Jan 1.

This zine will be 11 x 8.5 half fold format. 
Please send submissions to soupzine@yahoo.com



Hey, so I'm looking for submissions to this collaborative zine I edit and write for called PAZ. It's more or less a humor and general interest type magazine. All I'm looking for in article submissions is that they meet the minimum word count of one thousand words and that they be coherent. As far as short stories I'm looking for things with a maximum of about seven thousand words. I'd like for any poems submitted to be less than three pages but I may make exceptions. The most important thing for written submissions is that they be funny.  I'm also looking for art so if anyone wants to submit paintings, drawings, or photographs feel free. 

I'm looking to get the zine out on January 30th. It'll be posted on my blog, website thing: pazmag.wordpress.com. I'll also be emailing a digital copy to contributors and, if they so desire, mailing out printed copies of the issue to them. Email all submissions to ibkirk77@aol.com. Feel free to check out the first two issues of the zine on the blog. 

Thanks guys.

I make a comic zine called Dreams of Donuts, which is pretty much all about me and my life and punk stuff too.  I'm NOT looking for submissions for that, but I AM interested in submitting to another zine.  The reason I'm posting here, though, is because I have had a hard time finding a zine to submit to.  I would ideally like to submit to a zine that covers topics similar to my own zine: feelings, veganism, collective living, love interests, punk, house shows, mixtapes, etc. I'm also only looking for a print zine to contribute to, not one that is just or part an "ezine".  

If you've got something that sounds good for me, please email me at all4choice@hotmail.com
