Call for Submissions: Wheat Paste, a Guerilla Art Zine

Wheat Paste is a new zine about guerilla art. It will be one part showcase for found guerilla art, one part how-to, and one part rumination on the importance of non-corporate messages and images in public spacs.

For this zine, guerilla art is defined as anonymously produced pieces of intentional creations in public places, which include, but are not necessarily limited to, images, messages, and combinations thereof, public gardens that are not maintained by a government or corporation, three-dimensional works that augment existing structures such as wrapped buildings, and performance art like Improv Everywhere. HOWEVER, if you partake in or advocate a form of guerilla art not on that list, please consider submitting an article that defends and promotes it as true guerilla art. The purpose of guerilla art is to change things, after all, and what good is it if we get bogged down in what it's "supposed" to be?

Like its subject matter, copies of Wheat Paste will be left in public places. Contributors will receive three copies to do with as they wish. Submissions will be published anonymously; if you must be credited, please include a pseudonym with your submission. The first issue will be quarter size (4.25" x 5.5"). Submissions may be e-mailed to wheatpastezine@gmail.com or snail mailed to Hannah, PO Box 332213, Murfreesboro, TN 37133.

Either, both, and more. :^) The portion of the zine that is a showcase for found guerilla art (or your own, for that matter, since it will all be anonymous) is ideal for visuals, but there's room for illustration and photos to go along with articles as well.

If you have something specific in mind for how you want your contribution's layout to look, by all means do it and snail mail it. Any text-only submissions will be included in a homogeneous cut-and-paste format.
