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. Issue 4: Labyrinths (canals/ road bridges/ the strange and devious routes we take to fantasy/ intoxication/ escape) THE FINE PRINT 1. Send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the heading: ATTN: ASUANG SUBMISSION 2. The deadline for submissions is on May 31, 2012. 3. Payment is one contributor copy and that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from seeing your name in print. ;) VIVA SMALL PRESS!

That would be us. :)
ahh, teesside seems to have such a lovely paper culture going on right now.
I'd like to come down for a visit some time in January, as in come down for a gig or an event - maybe gbay at the georgian theatre?
So any recommendations for a likely event to pick up zines & leave some behind?
