Due to a number of requests I have decided to EXTEND the deadline. Therefore the NEW DEADLINE is 21st April 2012. Thanks for the submissions already received and keep them coming. So there is still time to send something in and remember it doesn't have to be an essay it can also be short and sweet.

call for submissions:

A New zine exploring our queer journeys and misadventures into the world of Awkwardness.The Misadventures of Awkward Queers is a quest to document our relationship to Awkwardness while navigating the queer spectrum. 
I'm endlessly reminded when I enter queer 'zones' how very easy it is for once simple social interactions to become incredibly difficult and complicated.
Awkwardness has become simultaneously non-threatening and amusing. Its becoming extremely fascinating how we are managing to master our misadventures and embracing Awkwardness. Share your Misadventures....

We want your Awkward stories, adventures, misadventures, anecdotes or advice. The moments you wished you'd forgotten, those that make you laugh hysterically, the sad ones, the raunchy ones, the would have and could have beens. Come and embrace your awkwardness and share share share...
We welcome many mediums of expression , including but not limited to collage, poetry, silkscreens, photos, prose and illustration

The Misadventures of Awkward Queers will not be sold for profit but to cover the cost of printing and it will also be available for trading. All contributers will get copies of the zine and be accredited in the zine. Contributors should submit work with the name they would like to appear in the zine (which can also be a pseudonym) as well as city/country and an email address they would like to appear in the zine (if they would like to be contacted) as well as other zine titles they have contributed to. (if applicable)
The plan is to make a full colour zine in A5 (half size) format.
Texts should be no more than 4 pages and artwork should also be suitable for black and white printing.

New Deadline : 21st April 2012

Trans/Genderqueer Zine Project/Call For Submissions

Topic: Essays, anecdotes, comix, collage, & poetry from trans and genderqueer folks telling stories of adolescence and puberty. Take that as broadly or narrowly as you'd like; literally how your body was changing and how your brain was dealing with it, or going to a dance and how that made you feel, to coming out to your family, friends, teachers & classmates.

 

Audience: 7-12th grade students.

 

Specifics: The pieces should be free of cursing and super overt sexual content.

 

Why/Purpose: Puberty and adolescence are hard for everyone but it's extra alienating and difficult when you feel alone and or radically different from everyone else. I want this zine to be an offering to trans and gender queer kids who need to see themselves in print, to know that they are not alone. I want the stories to offer comfort and hope to some young people who may be struggling. I would like the zine to be a resource for trans and gender queer students and a way to open the eyes and hearts of cisgendered students, parents, and teachers.

 

Send submissions to Brilliantmistake01@gmail.com

Please send as a basic word document with "Zine Submission" in the subject line. Art submissions should be 300 dpi scans or for bitmap line art 600 or more.

 

Send submissions by June 1, 2011. Feel free to e-mail me at Brilliantmistake01@gmail.com with any questions.

 

Thanks!

Carrie

Hey y'all Texas Queer Youth zine is wanting of your submissions!! are you queer? young? live in Texas, let us know about it!! share share share!!

Comment by Liza on March 11, 2012 at 5:12pm

In addition to my recent post, more specifically, I would really appreciate any submissions on IDENTITY, including but not limited to coming out, figuring out your interests, circle of friends, sexuality, etc, family, reputation, decisions made based on what you want others to think of you vs. what you want to do, anything related to gender and identity, how "be yourself" isn't a great answer to much when you're a teenager, or is it?, etc.  The zine is going to be a theme of identity WITHIN a theme of being an adolescent/teenager, so stuff related to teenage-dom (teenagerdom?) would be great too.  Thanks so much!  Email all submissions to creativeevolutionzine@gmail.com .
