Spiral Bound is a zine about self recording and exploration via text and image. Why do you journal? Why do you write? What form does your self expression take? Where do you journal? What do you use?
Send in 3 to 5 index cards (3x5 inches) written or drawn, or journaled, with your answers, sample journal entries, or your thoughts on the necessity of expression, your favorite mediums, your methods, or your madness.
Be creative and experimental. Send a journal entry. Carve some stamps. Play with a photocopier. Glue on some art or include a photograph.
Work must reproduce well in black & white, because it will be put into a zine which will be photocopy reproduced.
Your work, btw, doesn't have to be on an actual index card. Feel free to cut cardstock or some other heavy paper to that size!
Please text up, decorate, collage, paint only ONE side. Include your website, contact info, etc separately, an it will be listed (as little or as much as you want) in the back of the zine.
Publication time is not guaranteed to be immediate, due to needing a certain amt of content before publishing.
Please include a type or neatly handwritten address label, and 2 stamps for your returns. You will receive a copy of the zine when it is complete, even if your entry does not appear (due to space constraints.) Your entry MAY be considered for Spiral Bound #3, depending on response.
