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

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!

http://ltle.tumblr.com

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.

Ildrenchay Areyay Upidstay

I'm compiling an anthology of funny stories and anecdotes about children doing rather stupid things, I would love some of you to contribute to it and/or share the idea. Here's the blurb:

As I watched a 6 year old try to erase his felt tip drawing on a piece of paper with a whiteboard wiper, I realised something. Kids are stupid. Please don't misunderstand me, I love the little idiots; I find that children can show more empathy, understanding and compassion than the wisest old men. But my God can they be thick? I'm writing this from the privileged and fortunate position of surviving my youth, and that is quite something, considering that my favourite childhood game was hiding in cardboard box in the middle of a busy road.

If you have any good stories that you think would be suitable, please submit them to:
sillychildrenstories@gmail.com

Please include a title under one of the following categories:

-At Home.
-At School.
-Pre-school/toddlers.
-Art and Crafts.
-Sport.
-The Great Outdoors.
-Learning a Language.
-Miscellaneous.
-Kids are Amazing*.

*The final chapter will be devoted to stories demonstrating the heartwarming, brilliant, touching and intelligent things children do, showing just how much they have to offer the world.

Feel free to include a sentence about yourself e.g. 'Jim Green, an exhausted primary school teacher from Surrey' or 'Betty, mother of 6 dreading the Disney World trip next Summer'.

Guidelines and Conditions:
-The ideal length is a couple of paragraphs, but depending on the nature of the story it could be as short as a sentence or as long as a page. Longer than a page is possible, but the story's content would need to be good enough to justify it. The better written your contribution, the more likely it will be included.

-Please only use the child's first name or write anonymously. Please be tongue in cheek, the book is intended to tread close to the line, but not cross it. Do not send stories that you believe would upset the child or the child's parents/family. Any stories that are deemed insensitive or unkind will be excluded. The purpose of the book is to be playful, not hurtful.

-I will aim to avoid editing but I might have to make stylistic changes, so it matches the tone of the book.

-I'm sorry to say that I don't think I'll be able to pay any contributions (not on a young teacher's wage) other than offering you my sincere thanks, and your name in the book (if you want it there). Also a proportion of any profits made by the book will go towards educational charities (because let's face it, they need it).

-Finally, the deadline for submissions is December 15th (but the sooner the better please).

If you know any good humoured people that might have some stories, please share the idea around please point them in my direction.

Best,

Alex,

A stupid kid, all grown up.

Sugared Water is currently seeking submissions for a special themed edition: Myth+Magic (through Aug 25).

Give us evocative, descriptive language. Spin and enchant us.

Poetry • Fiction • Creative Nonfiction • Comics & Sequential Art • Art

Some topics you might consider:
Magic gardens, tricksters, witchcraft & herbalism, magic realism, origin stories, retelling of myths about gods and monsters, divination & fortune telling, gods in the modern world.

We’ll consider creative nonfiction as long as it touches on some relationship with myth or magic, or perhaps an affection for oral narratives within your own family—you could tell us how fantastical figures have influenced your development as a writer. Personal essays welcome.

For full guidelines, please see our submissions page.

  • Fiction & CNF should follow standard manuscript format. We’ll consider micro forms and short forms up to 4,500 words.
  • Art & Comics: No more than 5 .JPGs/pages at a time, please. We already have a cover, so we’re looking for internal art. High contrast black & white pieces work best.
  • Poetry: submit all poems in one .doc, .docx, or .rtf. No more than five poems per submission. Please format your works in 12 point Times New Roman or Garamond font.

Call for Submissions: Compilation zine seeking content from non-cisgender folks with experiences of sexual violence

In response to the binarism that pervades the majority of resources regarding recovery from sexual violence, I'm hoping to develop a compzine exploring non-cis (I use this term in an attempt to be as inclusive as possible – there exists an incredible diversity of gendered identities and experiences, and in attempting to delineate all possible permutations, I'm afraid I may inadvertently neglect someone) experiences of sexual trauma. I'm particularly interested in the ways in which non-cis identity may intersect with experiences of embodiment after sexual violence.

My hope for this project is to create a document that may serve as a point of reference for those navigating their own experiences of embodiment after sexual trauma.

Submissions can include poetry, non-fiction writing, visual art, and any other means by which you may want to express your experience. If you have a question, comment, suggestion, or submission, please e-mail tim (dot) c (dot) mcconnell (at) gmail (dot) com.

Submission deadline: August 31, 2014
