It’s been nearly six months since the last issue. It’s taken awhile for me to find again some solid ground within after the sudden loss of my dear friend JBIII. Aside from the strange salving powers of time, this was accomplished by turning to my beloved KD, & also to the several dear friends whose contributions appear in The Cenacle’s 17th anniversary issue.
I invited contributors to join me in creating an issue of remembrance for those lost to the world, or simply passed from their lives. The results are as varied as the people contributing.
The contents of this new issue include:
* Poetry by Ric Amante, Tom Sheehan, Martina Newberry, Zannemarie Lloyd Taylor, Joe Ciccone, Judih Haggai, Raymond Soulard, Jr., & newcomer Nathan D. Horowitz.
* New fixtion by Raymond Soulard, Jr.
* Classic fiction by Herman Melville
* Excerpt by John Perry Barlow from Birth of a Psychedelic Culture
* Photography by Kassandra & Raymond Soulard, Jr.
* From Soulard’s Notebooks commentary
* Notes from New England by Raymond Soulard Jr.
* “Travel to Belize” journal by Charlie Beyer
JBIII was a great fan of, & frequent contributor to, The Cenacle. This issue is dedicated, with love, to him. It was this love for him, & a devotion to Art I share with him still, that brought this issue into being finally. KD & I hope you enjoy it.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ASUANG by PAPER MONSTER PRESS Asuang is an umbrella term for creatures that people our imagination. As blood suckers, they engender in us, a fear of the dark, of morbidity, of paleness, of incense. The fear that desires, the fear that suffocates, not just creatures but open spaces and high places. Fear of beings that when looked at mirrors or through other eyes, resemble perhaps, ourselves? Then here maybe, there be monsters? Asuang then calls not just for darkness but for hallucinogen, psychedelia, kaleidoscopic narratives in whatever genre. Specifically, we ask for: 1. 1-3 poems/ essays/ flash fiction (less than 500 words, English or Filipino) 2. 1-3 artworks in black/ white (in JPEG format) 3. 1-3 sound pieces in MP3 or Wav format 4. Critical essays about the small press/ underground publishing/ the culture of fanzines (also under 500 words) 5. Reviews of any issue of Paper Monster Press (and we’ve done 6 so far) a. Pyrotechnic Poetry 1 b. Pyrotechnic Poetry 2 c. S/trip-hop d. Dream(pop) e. Queer Punk f. SANDIGmaan 6. A theme for 1 print year Ex. LOST IN TRANSLATION year a. Issue 1: Atlantis (about forgetting/ resurfacing/ the abyss/ depths/ drowning/ swan diving) b. Issue 2: Free Tibet (about culture clash/ Buddhism/ heights/ climbing/ pure dizziness of clouds) c. Issue 3: Time-space Warp (about timezones/ cultural differences/ time and space/ reincarnation/ and the endless echoes we can never reach) d.

crowded trainI jot -commuters look concerned

The Filth is seeking questions for our new column, Ask the Doctor! We're starting this new feature in our sex toys issue, but questions do not need to be of a sexual nature - but it's more fun if they are.
We are also looking for short stories and art about sex toys. Fiction or non, whatever. Anonymous is fine.
Check us out on Facebook, or send submissions/questions to email@example.com
Hi guys! This is literary related but not quite a zine. Brian Le Lay (does the perzine Humility Wave & is also the editor of monthly literary-arts zine Electric Windmill) has finished and released his first full-length book of poetry! 98 pages, 40 poems. Check it out here: http://electricwindmillpress.com/dbminj.html -- There you will find excerpts and links to purchase the print book and e-book. Until 12/6, there's free ground shipping with the code SLEIGHRIDES for the print version.
Want stuff that's either free or more zine-related instead? Brian contributes every month to Electric Windmill, so have at it! =) If you enjoy literary stuff, you would enjoy the 'zine. We usually offer poems, stories, articles, essays, along with visual art as well from contributors who are from all over!
View 'em for free online as a PDF, or order print copies for cheap!
One more thing... If you are seeking publication for your own work, Electric Windmill accepts submissions on a rolling basis. Find out more here: http://electricwindmillpress.com/faq.html
Electric Windmill is an independent book publisher and monthly literary-arts publication. We've nothing to do with windmills or electricity in a literal sense, but we do hope to generate a self-empowering community where artists and thinkers of different, but equally important mediums and ideologies can co-exist.
This isn't about the avant-garde, or the underground, or promoting one specific type of literary expression. People are more important than art. This is about people. Their stories. Their suffering. Their ideas about the world.
Hey! Submit Something to MonkeyTrash.org !! get it out
hey all, issue #3 of "Damaged Mentality" is available at www.fluxxii.com and, especially, for trade. hit me up if you'd like a copy. ~S.N.
You draw lines, shape boxes, and try to decide which ones fit you best. But have you ever stepped outside the line and think, how much further would you dare to go? People who are openly queer call this coming out of the closet. We close ourselves, cage our hearts, and throw away the key. For this issue, we are daring you to come out with us.
Once again, trust us with your submissions. We ask you to go over the boundaries of gender, race, norms, and clichés.
We want your roars for human dignity. Colors of explosions and madness, and words that ignite our passion for equality.
Give us your poetry, your essays, your stories, your art, and your music in their most rebellious forms. Color our worlds queer in the way punk personified anarchy.
Cross borderlines on tightropes. Shrug off oppression. Do away with social conventions. Put stereotypes aside forever, never again to be worn by anyone.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: September 30, 2011
Now, there are no standards, no boundaries. We’ll make our love on wastelands and through the barricades.
