Sugared Water seeks submissions for issue #004. (And possibly one or two to finish out the pages of #003.)

SW is an independent lit mag published & handbound in Cincinnati, OH. Our cover art is original and produced in limited edition (240 or fewer, usually around 150). We read poetry & prose, with a particular interest in flash and micro forms, lyric and personal essays, prose poetry, free verse poetry, and individual, strong senses of voice and place. We will consider 3-5 poems or up to 4,500 words in fiction of creative nonfiction.

You can see more on our current issues here: http://sugaredwatermagazine.wordpress.com/issues/
And our complete guidelines here: http://sugaredwatermagazine.wordpress.com/submission-guidelines/

We read via Submittable (https://sugaredwater.submittable.com/submit) and are listed at Duotrope (https://duotrope.com/listing/11757).

Poetry: 3-5 poems, free verse or modern forms preferred (broken sonnets, modern American haiku, for example).
Fiction: up to 4,500 words with a preference for flash & micro forms.
Creative Nonfiction: up to 4,500 words. We like personal essay, lyric essay, character sketches, lists, pieces written in the form of something else, letters. Show us something true and wonderfully messy, or lyric and pristine. Just show us who you are.

We're also interested in comics, sequential art, mixed media art, art in general, and graphic narratives including illustrated lists, sketchbook pages, photos with handwritten words overtop, and any manner of eye candy.

When I was 17, working in a supermarket, I had a large collection of shopping lists. A shame I had to grow up, you could have had them Nick!

hello! me and a friend are working on a zine called Girl Love and we'd love your contributions. it could be anything, like gendered language, girl hate, safety on a night out, how girls are brought up to see each other as competition, how to make your group more inclusive, girls working together now/ in history... or any of your ideas.

if you want to chat about an idea, message one of us or email girllovezine@hotmail.com.

please share this with anyone who might be interested xx

I'm requesting any available zines anyone would like to donate to a forming zine library at the Lawndale branch in Southern California. All subject matter is accepted (pending approval by the Library and City) but please keep in mind the main demographic is teens. Unfortunately I can't reimburse you (even for shipping) as I'm already fronting the cost of this project (materials, PO BOX, etc.) so anything you can send is much appreciated.

Please send zine donations to:
Nina (Lawndale Zine Library)
14752 Crenshaw Blvd. #525
Gardena, CA, 90249

This project could mean big things for the South Bay, which despite having a long history with DIY/punk culture has very few spaces available for the youth. Any direction to people interested in donating or tips for library formation from experienced parties is also appreciated. Both the community and I thank you for your time and consideration in donating!

No Apologies is always taking submissions. Whether it's a comic, a photograph, an album review, a band/cool person interview. I am pretty open minded as far as the content as long as it's good. Drop me a line at tricia.callahan@hotmail.com

Recently was approved to do a zine library @ my local branch! So PLEASE SEND ME YOUR ZINES!

Nina 14752 Crenshaw Blvd. #525
Gardena, CA 90249

Duplicates are appreciated since we may lose some when people borrow. Any/all topics/subjects are welcome but are pending approval depending on how loose the city wants to be with content.

Please share this with anyone you know who may want to donate! I also would appreciate any suggestions (either message me here or e-mail zinesbynina@gmail.com) of where I can request zines from other folx.

Thanks so much!

LTLE - Letters To the LTLE Editor

Seeking submissions!


Letters to the editor pages seem, nowadays, to be as anachronistic as the newspapers in which they first appeared. I think it has become a suspicious activity to actually write in to a publication or program instead of just spewing your nugget of love or rage into comment threads. There’s a level of commitment in submitting a letter for publication that isn’t present with an instantaneously and automatically published comment.

I think it should not be so deviant to commit to incoherent ideas. The problem with big, coherent, important writing is that it is worth something. Or rather, the problem is that not being worth something is seen as suspicious or bad. Valuelessness is not badness. Even when I succeed in my efforts to not be a prejudiced dickhead, it is still possible (likely, or even certain) that I am being irrelevant, senseless, apocryphal, inelegant.

Sometimes the content is irrelevant. Sometimes the point of writing a letter is for somebody to read your letter. The degree to which it is sensible and/or comprehensible is less important than the fact that it is there and that it is visible.

Sometimes the high value placed upon meaningful, coherent content invalidates a person’s need to be heard, because the value of the person’s presence is reduced to their ability to sound acceptable, ‘nice,’ and ‘relatable.’

Newspapers don’t pay for letters to the editor. If I know that I won’t receive payment for my work, but I still write, this frees me from the need to be strictly coherent, or valid, or sensible, or valuable. Things are free only when nobody can be persuaded to pay for them, and I think this makes those things priceless.

I’ve been thinking about these things for a long time, and I know I’m not the only person to have thought them. I’m going to begin this zine, LTLE. The first L stands for ‘Letters.’ The T stands for ‘To the.’ The E stands for ‘Editor.’ The second L stands for ‘LTLE.’

I’m the editor. I want to compile letters to the editor. The letters can be about anything - current news, old news, personal rants & loves, responses to past letters, or they can be about no discernible topic. The point is that their incoherence, worthlessness or extreme specificity will present no obstacle to their publication.

I don’t claim that this project is worthwhile, and I don’t know if it will add anything of value to the world, whatever that means. I’m committing to it anyway, though - printing everything out and distributing it as if it matters.

Submissions are in the style of a letter to the editor, so up to about 200 words. The minimum word count is one word. Include the name (and location, if you wish) under which you want the letter to be credited. The name and location can be fictional and/or outrageous if you wish.

Submissions will be ongoing, but I aim to have collected enough letters for issue 1 by October 10, 2014.
