THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE DIGITIZED – Open call for submissions!

WHO?  The Revolution Will Not Be Digitized is a half-size compilation zine with a focus on the manifestation of art, actions, and ideas in the real world.

WHAT?  What kind of things are you talking about, you ask? Well, all kinds, really:  zines, art, protest marches, coffee (or martini) dates for  in –person conversations, music, random street theatre, snail mail, anything that extends beyond the virtual to exist in our analog world.

“The Rev” (for short, b/c Kitty is lazy and also does not like acronyms that don’t spell anything) is in search of articles, poems, and rants; interviews with people who make shit/make shit happen; comics, art, photography, and illustration (image-based submissions must be black-and-white copy friendly); lists which inspire people to get out and do things; instructions on how to make/do/create something; etc.

WHY?  Because in an age where people’s lives become increasingly virtual, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection to the real. That is not to say that we are anti-internet. The internet is a fan-fucking-tastic tool. It is a means, though, not an end. The end is the world we live in: this analog, gritty, risky, crazy, physical, scary, beautiful, awesome world.

WHERE?  Email submissions can be sent to:  kittykerosene@gmail.com – mailing address will be sent along to anyone needing to mail their submissions.  (In other words, we need to get a new P.O. Box and didn’t want to wait to do that to post this. Just send us a message and within a few days we’ll get ya that info.)

WHEN?  Deadline June 30th, 2012.  If you submit and hear nothing back, then we’re swamped and likely not interested at this time, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love ya.

Right now, the plan is for this to be a one-off, but it may become an annual or something.  Who can say?

Email any questions to the address above, please and thanks.

Don’t email or comment with arguments about how the internet is great, though. We love the internet – two of us met and got married through it. Hell, we’re posting here on the internet to find like-minded people for this collaborative project. There’s nothing to convince us of when it comes to appreciation of the digital world. We just also think that there’s more to life than what comes down this crazy series of tubes.

X’s and O’s to everyone who makes shit!

Scattered Brightness is looking for submissions! I'm new to the zine world but super passionate about snail mail and creation. 

Theme: Sherbet summer dream. The idealism that goes into the beginning of summer and the downfalls.

Looking for: poems, answers to the question "what's your idea of a good time?", essays, short short stories, b&w photography, line drawings, collages, meditations….and everything else that I left out. 

If interested (and I hope you are!) please send work/questions to: scatteredbrightness@gmail.com

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!!

the theme is pathology, inspired both by my job in a hospital and a giant pathology textbook i couldn't resist buying.  pathology can refer to the study of disease, viruses and bacteria, cancers and infections--but it can also evoke 'normal' or 'typical' reactions or expressions taken to an extreme ('pathological gambling', etc.). 

of course, this definition of what is pathological requires a set standard of what is normal, which varies from community to community--and i would guess many of us don't live up to.  the interesting thing to me is the difference between the definition and how we live our lives. 

thoughts of possible topics that most immediately come to mind:
* disability / ableism / accessibility
* mental illness / intellectual disability / psychotropic medications / alternative treatments
* non-monogamy / choosing to be single / not getting married / getting married
* sexuality / asexuality / kinks / etc
* pop culture / the love of glitter / the love of tattered black t-shirts
* healing / health / the medical system
* the overlap and dischord between different communities / scenes / cliques
* political & community organizing: how it works, how it fails us
* the list could go on and on....

i am looking for writing and art that is easily photocopied in a half-page format (8.5 by 11, folded so the 8.5 ends touch each other).  i'm open to different mediums and formats, although any terrible poetry will be immediately recycled.  i'm also open to varying genres: funny, sad, personal, fictional, etc.... my last compilation zine had poetry, a recipe, memoir, and lists, and i'm hoping to replicate the same eclectic format. 

also, i hope to reprise the "things i love that i shouldn't" and "things i should love that i don't" lists from whatever saves #1, so please send me your thoughts on that as well. 

contributions can be sent to:
megan
po box 22761
seattle, wa 98122

or
whateversaves@gmail.com

deadline is july 1st.

please include contact information so i can send you a copy of the zine(s)

can't wait to see what y'all come up with.

Nearly There: A Queer POC Zine

What: Nearly There is a zine project meant to address the serious absence and silencing of stories about the experiences of queer people of color. After years of going to zine fests, libraries, bookstores looking for queer zines and POC zines and finding few to none, after years of existing as a queer woman of color and being sidelined in all those communities, and after years of always hearing about a potential zine project like this waiting for someone else to start it, the time is right for us to begin showcasing and prioritizing our own shit. For those of us who occupy the spaces of both queer and of color (along with all our other identities), this project is about creating an arena where we can listen and be heard, find commonality and difference, and leave a mark in the making of our own queer history and POC history.

Who: Knowing full well that for many of us, terms like queer or LGBTQ+ often do not and cannot truly measure who we are but being limited by the lack of other terms, this project is for, by, and about queer/LGBTQ+ youth of color including those of us who are low-income/working class, 1st/1.5/2nd/3rd generation im/migrants, city based, Mestiz@, Chican@, rural based, bi/multi racial or mixed, undocumented, same-gender-lovin, formerly or currently incarcerated, parents, dark skinned, from any spiritual background, college educated, butch, femme, aggs, street-involved, etc, etc, etc.

Theme: For this first issue, the theme is relatively open and inclusive of any issue, concern, or interest of queer POC. Ideally looking for submissions about in/visibility in queer and POC communities, discourses on coming/being out or not, finding and creating queer POC spaces, and more. Email me with your questions!

Submit: stories, poetry, non-fiction (in any format), drawings, photos, raps, and portraits, rants, quotes, essays, etc.

Send submissions and inquiries to: nearlytherezine@gmail.com

Deadline: August 1st 2012
