CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS! Paper Monster Press "Queer Punk Issue" (The Year-ender, Ear-banger Issue!)


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.

 

GENERAL GUIDELINES: 

  1. All works must be submitted to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com.
  2. Each contributor may submit 3 works ONLY from each category. That means you may submit 3 literary works, 3 artworks, and 3 musical pieces, but no more than that.
  3. The EIC’s laptop is Buddhist, so aside from attaching text submissions, kindly paste the contents of your piece(s) to the body of your e-mail.
  4. Submit literary pieces in English or Filipino. We do not have the capacity to read and/or translate foreign languages as well as local dialects at the moment. Works should not exceed 500 words.
  5. Submit artworks in JPEG format. We accept both colored and black or white art, but please be reminded that PMP will only have a colored cover, the rest of the zine will be in black and white.
  6. Submit sounds in MP3 format. Add a short description of each track in two to three sentences.
  7. If your piece is inspired by an artist/work, please indicate the artist/work from which your piece sprang from.
  8. PMP religiously follows the process of selecting and editing. We stand by our editors’ decisions.
  9. For updates, just check the Paper Monster Press Facebook page (www.facebook.com/papermonsterpress)

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: September 30, 2011

 

Now, there are no standards, no boundaries. We’ll make our love on wastelands and through the barricades.

Hi,

as you may or not know the library has an exhibition at Salford Art Gallery running from 15th October 2011 to 29th January 2012.


I am looking to show a film at the exhibition made up of short videos that contributers to the library have made of themselves. The video will explain why you personally self publish and about the zines you produce. To submit please email me your short talking head videos no longer than five minutes. I will compile and edit these together and add captions for the finished film. All are welcome to contribute to this project and I would like an eclectic range of zine makers to participate covering all the genres etc. 


So wherever you are making your zines it would be great to hear from you.
To submit Zines the address is:

48 LANDOS COURT

MANCHESTER

M40 7WT

UNITED KINGDOM


Kind regards


Craig

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!
Paper Monster Press “Dream Pop Issue”

After setting the mood with the seductive flair of our "S/Trip-Hop" issue, we will now be leading you into a lovely afterglow with the "DREAM POP ISSUE."

Melodies taking you on an out-of-body experience; rhythms wrapping you up in a blanket of spacious soundscapes; and voices resonating like an echo-laden remix of your favorite bedtime lullaby. Dream Pop is the kind of music that keeps you awake yet under the sheets in a trancelike state at any hour of the day. It is atmospheric and ethereal... And that is precisely what Paper Monster's fourth issue is all about.

We are calling all literary, visual and sound artists to give us their personal interpretations of DREAM POP in the form/s of:


• LITERARY ART: We accept poetry, literary essays, critical essays, microfiction, reviews of Paper Monster Press issues 1-3, and ekphrasis works.
• VISUAL ART: We accept new media art, installation art, abstract expressionism, lowbrow, graffiti, body art, pop art, photography etc. (any kind of visual art, basically).
• SOUND ART: We accept sounds that embody dream pop. Think spacious, ambient, steady, atmospheric,ethereal.

GENERAL GUIDELINES:
1. All works must be submitted to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com.
2. Each contributor may submit 3 works ONLY from each category. That means you may submit 3 literary works, 3 artworks, and 3 musical pieces, but no more than that. This is to give space and a chance to others.
3. Submissions must be loosely/closely based on the dream pop genre of music.
4. The EIC’s laptop is Buddhist, so aside from attaching text submissions, kindly paste the contents of your piece to the body of your e-mail.
5. Submit literary pieces in English or Filipino. We do not have the capacity to read and/or translate foreign languages as well as local dialects at the moment. Works should not exceed 500 words.
6. Submit artworks in JPEG format. We accept both colored and black or white art, but please be reminded that PMP will only have a colored cover, the rest of the zine will be in black and white.
7. Submit sounds in MP3 format.
8. If your piece is inspired by a dream pop artist/work, kindly state the artist/work from which your piece sprang from.
9. PMP religiously follows the process of selecting and editing. We stand by our editors’ decisions.
10. For updates, just check the Paper Monster Press Facebook page (www.facebook.com/papermonsterpress)

Deadline for this issue: JUNE 30, 2011

Ladies and gentlemen, let us now get ready to float in space...

Hello everybody!

I have this great new zine called "Le Stoner's Digest", and you should all go take a look at it ;)

It contains 5 original stories about psycho-maniac murderers with large blades, and you can find it on my etsy shop : http://www.etsy.com/shop/inoxid .

 

Thanks for your time, and here's the whole drill :

"Le Stoner's Digest is a new fiction zine written by two french dudes ( with some help from Displaced Snail's very own J. Carlough!). It is sleazy, violent, fun, what can i say, it's PULP as FUCK.

First issue is about big knives and psycho killers, and you should not let your kids read it. I mean, seriously, why would you give them some cheap-ass zine when they could be entertaining themselves with Cosmopolitan or some cool mag with high-end cars and big boobs?

Contains 5 profanity-littered original stories, and plenty of illustrations. 32 A5 pages of gorgeous 120g paper, with a manly 200g cover, and the supplement is a short story by Phillibert Mossberg printed on that awesome but weirdly formatted paper i once found in the street in Paris. True story!"
