I'm the editor a small art/lit zine called Khubz. Based out of Pittsburgh, Khubz looks to highlight the distinct art and culture of the Rustbelt through art, photography, and literature. Through an ever-growing network of artists and academics, I hope to strike a balance between the personalized and unique appeal of a zine and the creative direction and quality of a literary journal, creating a final product inviting to all readers.
Khubz allows me to draw upon my interests in political activism, literature, and the cultural identity of western Pennsylvania to produce something that has been well received thus far. However, I still have no idea what I'm doing with this zine. I've always enjoyed zines and the DIY ethic, but being trained in lit studies and journalism, I'm still figuring out exactly what it is I'm doing with Khubz.
We're always looking to add new contributors to the publication, so feel free to send art, photography, poetry, prose, or short stories to firstname.lastname@example.org or check us out at www.freewebs.com/khubzine
