ONE LAST RALLYING CRY FOR QUEER PUNK: DEADLINE EXTENDED (OCTOBER 31, 2011)

 

You draw lines and you draw lines, and then you shape boxes and boxes and try to decide which ones fit you best. But have you ever stepped outside the line, and think, coming this far, how much farther would you dare? That’s why, people who are openly queer call this term coming out of the closet. Because we close ourselves, and cage our hearts, and throw away the key. This issue, we dare you to come out with us. Cross those lines on tightropes, shrug off gender boundaries, do away with stereotypes. We are who we are, and if we know this then labels don’t matter at all. Because we’ve got to honour the differences, or what’s the same wouldn’t count.

 

And who could be more queer, or more punk than us? We ask you once again to trust us with your submissions. We ask you to explore the boundaries of gender, race, stereotypes, rebellion, and anarchy. We ask you to give us your poetry, your art, and your music, in its most rebellious, most queer punk. Mainstream or underground, gay or lesbian, hardcore or soft porn, and hey, even alpha males are welcome. We want you to colour our worlds queer(punk). Now there are no rules, no boundaries, we’ll make our love on wastelands and through the barricades (Spandau Ballet).

 

We are interested in works that question, that reveal, that critique, that ask, that makes us curious. We want to see colors, and explosions, and madness, we want works that ignite our passion for equality and justice. We want works that ask for human dignity for all. We want works that make us want to shrug off oppression, and put it aside to forever after never be worn by anyone again. Because Who in the New World does not have a horror of the past, whether his ancestor was torturer or victim? Who in the depth of conscience, is not silently screaming for pardon or revenge? The pulse of New World history is the racing pulse beat of fear, the tiring cycles of stupidity and greed (Derek Walcott). And it need be that no longer. In the dawn of the New Age, we ask you to join us to fight for human dignity for all. Gay or lesbian, man or woman, colored or white; all different, all beautiful. And in this great future, you can forget your past, so dry your tears, I say (Bob Marley).

 

BY GENRE:

 

  1. Literary (English/ Filipino). 500 words or less.
  2. Visual Art (colored/ black and white). JPEG Format.
  3. Music. MP3 format.

 

Send everything to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com until October 31, 2011. Thank you and support the small press!

Greetings from the Gutter!

 

The Filth will celebrate its first birthday in January. We are doing a birthday/candy theme... a sort of dark tea party thing. We need short stories (no word limit) and art! Something like this:

 

There were puppies strung up in the trees... their bloated little bodies crawling with maggots, swarming with flies. The girl in the party dress and blindfold spun around... once, twice... three times for good measure, and swung the branch as hard as she could, soundly connecting with the closest corpse. The body burst open in a riot of entrails, a miasma of stench. Gore soaked the children who were eating cake nearby.

 

Send contributions to thefilthsubmissions@gmail.com Deadline December 20th

I am also interested in doing some trades, so hit me up!

PEACE? YOU NAME IT!



This blog magazine contains the contributions to the 10th
FRIOUR project developed by Guido Vermeulen. FRIOUR is the word PEACE in
Icelandic. The 10th project asks the question what peace means to you? So
results are often surprising. Sometimes even funny, to say it with the words of
Reid Wood: PEACE = TO TURN ONIONS CLOCKWISE. Email contributions can be mailed to signsstones@yahoo.com. By snail mail to: FRIOUR 10, Guido Vermeulen, Thomas Vincottestreet 81, B-1030 Brussels, BELGIUM.

The F-Bomb is looking for short stories (ficition or non), art, comics, lists, letters, or collages! Right now we have two zines in the making; one is our usual half-size, color cover. The other is a quarter-size b&w insert zine to the bigger one. The half-size's theme is going to be alternate realities. Where/who would you be if one thing had/had not happened to you or someone else?


The secrets issue is anonymous submissions. Spill your depravity, guilt, ambitions, love interests here! It is your choice if you'd like it to remain anonymous or not.

 

Deadline for both issues is November 1st. You can email them to me directly at thefbombzine (at) gmail.com.

Also, please specify if you'd like to receive periodic e-mails with info for contributing to future issues. Thanks so much! Hope to hear from some of you guys.

Our mission is to find artists and creative talent.  By this we mean, not those who have the ability to simply produce, but those who have the drive to produce and captivate an audience.  We are looking for the ambitious; those who are not afraid to fail because their art is what gives place and purpose in their reality.  Artists who are not doing art to become famous, but to satisfy a need to bring forth his or her own reality and amalgamate this with ours.

Hello! This is a call for submissions to my new compilation zine project: "Dear You: Letters To Lost Friends". I've previously posted here calling for subs to the rather successful compilation zine: The Perfect Day and this would be my 2nd comp. zine.

What is this about?
Dear You: Letters to Lost Friends is a compilation zine project containing letters to people who for various reasons, are not in our lives anymore / are less significant.

It is inevitable that people who enter our lives, leave eventually. Dealing with people leaving is not easy, but it is the ways some of them leave that just make it a lot more difficult to handle. The sudden non-talking, the disinterest, the distance, death... This could be due to many reasons, major disagreements, moving away physically or emotionally, breakups, differences, changes in life circumstances, deaths and etc.

Writing letters could be a crucial part of the healing process.


Submit letters you've written to friends who were once in your life but aren't anymore / less significant.

For more information, kindly visit the project site here.

Thank you!

Best,
Janell
