We just published a new poetry zine!


By Hand was created as part of the Hands on Poetry event at Alphabet City, which was part of New Zealand's National Poetry Day 2011. Attendees at the event contributed poems, and these were compiled into a zine.


Contributors: Eamonn Mara, Alice Connolly, Jackson Nieuwland, James Duncan, Alison Thira, Rose Noir, Anna Forsyth, Zanni Yeah!, Kora, Clovis McEvoy, Francis Carter, Alex Hoyles, Kirsty Win, Sophie Barclay, N Nissenbaum.


If you'd like to get hold of a copy, they're $2 NZ (within New Zealand) or $3 US (elsewhere). You can:

  • send Paypal to moira@nutmeg.gen.nz
  • conceal cash and post it to Alphabet City/ P O Box 7754, Wellesley Street, Auckland, New Zealand, or
  • contact us for other payment options or if you're interested in trading for your own zine.  

Thanks to National Poetry Day for their support of the Hands on Poetry event and this zine's publication.

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.

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...

Hi guys and gals,


I'm beginning some research for a university project on Poetry and Illustration and how poetry can be represented visually. I figured the zines community would have some beautiful examples of just that idea and thought I'd put a shout out to you all. Do you illustrate poetry? Are you a poet who has had their work illustrated? What's your opinion on visual representation of poetry? Do you have a favourite example?


If you'd like to answer some questions for me or you have examples of illustrated poetry, give me a bell! I'm happy to buy zines with poetry/illustration so let me know if you make them!

Having a goofy little time and putting together a small quarter-sized lit mag. Looking for poetry and flash fiction, mostly. It's called Modicum, looking to collect small, short, and charming work, and the first issue's theme is Trees. Head to the Modicum page to find the guidelines and all!

I hope you're well!

Hey ya fellow poets!,

We're currently gathering material for SADWRN, an international new polyglot zine on poetry, speculative fiction/general speculation and comics, that will be published world and webwide around February.

Right now we're looking for your bright poetry to illuminate our lives and minds. We already count with poetry in English and Welsh, as well as with interviews with Les U. Knight (founder of the VHEMT, http://www.vhemt.org/), J.L. Pardo (philosopher and Spanish translator of Guy Debord's 'La societé du spectacle') and José Carlos Fernandes (http://jcfernandes.carbonmade.com/), texts by Weird Fiction (http://weird-fiction.net/) and more.

Feel free to submit your bold distilled poetry (preferably in English, Spanish, Greek or Welsh) to alvaromielgogallego@hotmail.com, or contact me here on WMZ.

I have a new poetry zine out called suicide notes. I wrote suicide notes to friends and family in poem-form and put them together for readers' reading pleasure. I would love to trade for other poetry zines / chapbooks. Please comment on my page if you're interested.

I want to make another poetry zine and another haiku zine. I was thinking it would be fun to include some works from other writers and not all by me. If you may be interested, please send me a message!
Comment by KEROUAC'S DOG MAGAZINE on May 7, 2010 at 1:15am
Kerouac’s Dog Magazine ® is a brand-spanking new, independently published quarterly magazine set to form a bold and exciting creative platform for new writing, design, photography, fashion and plenty more. It’s inspired by Jack Kerouac and the 1960s Beat generation and in honour of these, will eagerly exhibit the newest and bravest work and folios, from creatives all over the world. All tied up with key themes of freedom; truth; beauty; love; travel; wanderlust; sex; taboo; and fringe. The whole thing will be beautifully designed and printed top-to-bottom in black and white (because we have a passion for all things black and white).

Issue 1 needs you – The very first Issue. ‘Freedom’ will be released as a limited print-run later in the year, and available to buy online, to a global audience. So we’re calling on creatives for submissions on this theme and this theme only. As the whole thing is in black and white, the only stipulation is that the stuff you send needs to be in – or look gorgeous in - monochrome. It can be old work, or new work, we don’t mind. We won’t be able to pay you, but we’re happy to put names and URLs with each submission used so please send these through, along with your work.
In the subject line, please put KDM FREEDOM followed by your name and creative discipline. Remember all image and graphics need to be at least 300dpi. What are you waiting for? Please get in touch.
