New Zine - Like Lightning #2

Like Lightning #2 - 1/4-sized, 24 pages, blue opalescent card-stock cover with gold lightning bolt decal.

Like the first issue, Like Lightning #2’s format is inspired by Anne Carson’s “Short Talks”—brief vignettes on various topics. Unlike the first issue, #2 shares snapshots of a single story. Our woman burns down her childhood home, changes her name and hair color and runs away, first south, then west, to find a new place and state of existence. Sort of a perzine, sort of a literary zine.

An excerpt:

On Adairs Run

Driving through the mountains fills her with joy and sadness. The angry crags, the ravines, the rusty train tracks cutting through the terrain, the long, winding roads leading off to nowhere, the intersections with two cars, the small, secluded houses, the rundown, clapboard fruit stands teetering over the soft shoulders of Adairs Run. If only she could press down her palm, flatten everything out and then sprinkle a layer of dust, she’d feel as though she’s made it to her Oklahoma. So close, and yet. She see rivers and rusted-out pick-up trucks and people fly-fishing. The sun singes the trees red.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

LTLE - Letters To the LTLE Editor is a new zine comprised entirely of letters to the editor. It celebrates incoherence, apocrypha, irrelevance, and unworkable specificity.

I am 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.

The minimum wordcount is 1. The maximum wordcount is ~200. All contributors receive a copy of the zine. Notional deadline is October 10, 2014.

Just finished a few zines. Most of them are free. You can see them all on Etsy or on my website.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Hand Job Zine Issue 6 is in the making!

As always, we are looking for new and varied writing and artwork to publish in our pages.

If you have never heard of us before, we are a UK anarchist literary zine, although our writing and artwork doesn't always have to represent our political view it does have to be truly British. This is the only real guideline. We like it to represent the people and places that usually get forgotten by the media and be honest in it's content. If you don't think it fits with this though, send it on over anyway as we do love a good story!

Also, if anyone is interested in illustrating a story or poem this is an area that we really like to pursue, so drop us an email with a link to some of your work and we'll try to send you something out that seems to fit with your style.

handjobzine@gmail.com

Look forward to the subs! 

All the best,

Hand Job Zine

Hot Trash Zine is a Bay Area feminist art and music zine. We provide an OPEN space for anyone and everyone to be an artist, a writer, a poet, and an activist. We take open submissions, so send your art and writings to hottrashzine@mail.com. No entries will be turned away for extreme vulgarity or obscenity, so be as nasty, as dirty, and as trashy as you want. 
This is free speech, baby.

GAMBA Zine is a provocative new literary magazine created to inspire passion and thoughtfulness outside the politics of mainstream publication. The founders, Chris Carr and Melissa Hunter Gurney, hope to challenge set truths through the generation of authentic, momentary, boundless, art. The idea spurred from extensive conversations about accessibility of independent and international artists, who avidly practice their craft but may not be recognized in the public eye. 

We are looking for writers to submit work that pushes the limits of their craft and adds to an exhibition of progressive ideas from all over the world. 

The theme for Issue #2 is:

Reverse Programming
 
In a society built on oppression and organized manipulation of right vs. wrong, successful vs. unsuccessful, fact vs. perspective what must we do to change the program inside and out? 

Submission Requirements:

~ Send by August 5, 2014
~ No more than two single spaced, typed pages (1500 words)
~ Include a 3-5 sentence Artists Bio (website, blog address, email, etc....)
~ Email to huntergraham18@yahoo.com with the subject "GAMBA Submission"
