Call for Submissions: BASEMENTS AND LIVING ROOMS Issue 3

Hey everyone!

This is a call for submissions to the 3rd issue of Basements and Living Rooms: a zine about diy music and house shows.
Deadline: October 1st

The subtopic for this issue is feminist, queer, trans, and poc experiences in DIY and punk. examples that I think about...feeling marginalized or oppressed, lack of privilege, checking the privilege that you do have, standing up for yourself in the punk scene, not being (or being for that matter) a straight white cis male, consent, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, racism,
The subtopic is not mandatory, just an encouraged suggestion. You can submit anything on the topic of house shows or diy music.

The zine will be published in the fall and released on November 3rd 2012 at Milwaukee Zine Fest!

I'll put almost anything in the zine including stories, photographs, comics, artwork, essays, flyers, journal entries, poetry, etc.

Flyers are something I'd really like to get more of for this issue. I'd like to have a few pages filled with a bunch of images of flyers. If you wanna write something about flyering and making flyers that'd be rad too. I'll also be having a flyer "art show/exhibit" sometime this summer/fall, so consider sending flyers for that too. You can also drop flyers off at CCC in the flyer drop box on the shelf by the window.

You will receive a free copy of the zine. The covers for the first run will be hand printed (probably screenprinted).

The 1st and 2nd issue each had about 20 participants and they were all awesome!!

Send things to :
2566 N Booth St
Milwaukee, WI 53212


The zine will be regular digest-sized, 8 1/2 x 11 folded in half.
Image resolution should be at least 300. You can do your own layout or send me pictures and I'll put them in throughout the zine. If you do your own layout, it should be 8 1/2 x 11 landscape, or 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 portrait. Text based submissions can also have their own layout, and turned into a jpeg or pdf that is at least 300 dpi. Or you can send the text in a word, .doc, or .txt document.

PLEASE let me know how you would like to be credited. Include everything you'd like listed in the zine with your piece. (ie:name, contact info, website, the name of your zine, any combination of those things, or none of those things, anonymous, etc.)

Let me know if you'd like some form of creative commons, copyright, anti-copyright, or nothing.

ALSO INCLUDE your mailing address so I can send you a copy of the zine.

Send any questions to shannon@qzap.org.
