We thought it would be fun to put together a zine with the theme: Carnivals. We also thought it would be fun to do a collaboration.
Anything carnival related is great. This includes but is not limited to: fiction, art, true stories, humor, comics, scary stories, dark art, collage, anything creepy...
If you have a cool true story about something that happened to you at the carnival, if you like to write fiction about any era in time that includes a carnival, or if you like to draw scary clowns, please email any submission you like.
The title of this zine will be the title of the submission we liked the best and won't be revealed until we send them out. Each contributor gets a free copy of course. So along with your emailed submission, please include your contact information including your mailing address so we can send you one when it's completed. Also, please let us know if you have a website, email address, alias or whatever you'd like printed with your contribution in the zine.
We'd like to begin putting it together in August. So that means we'd like it if your submissions could be sent by the end of July. Also, if you plan to submit a piece of writing, please don't make it too lengthy as many pages become expensive to print.
We make quality zines so your work is in good hands. We plan to sell it at the zine events we go to and probably put some copies in a few stores in Austin, TX.
We also will likely illustrate some of the stories that don't have illustrations.
Some people like to mail their submission we understand, so if you'd prefer to do it that way, please just email us and we'll send you our mailing address.
If you have questions you can either post them here in the comments section or email us at: buttersword (at) gmail.com.
