Call for submissions: Panty Rage feminist zine
Calling all feminists! I’m accepting submissions for a summer zine project, an anthology of feminist art and writing. Submissions will be accepted until July 15th, when I will compile and format everything for printing - but I will also be posting all of the submissions to this blog as I receive them, so send your work in as early as possible!
Guidelines are as follows:
-You can submit anything you’d like, and everything that is submitted WILL be published, as long as it is a) related to feminism, b) your own intellectual property, and c) not offensive. If I think something is offensive, I will talk to you about it first and we’ll see if it’s possible to publish with some editing or a disclaimer.
-Please feel free to make multi-page work, but be aware that if you send in a large amount of content, I may not be able to include all of it. I will let you know if this is the case.
-Include your name, or the name you’d like your work to be credited to, along with a short bio and your website/blog/Facebook/Twitter/etc. if you have one that you want me to link to.
-The final zine will be half-size (5.5x8.5”) and printed in grayscale, so keep this in mind when creating your submissions. I will format them to fit the page size, but it will be helpful to you to be aware of the proportions and scale at which your work will be printed. Also, all color submissions will be gladly accepted and posted to the blog in color, but they will be converted to grayscale for printing (or you can send me both color and grayscale versions to make things a little easier for me).
-Make sure to provide a valid email address that I can use to contact you in case there are any issues with your submission, and to let you know when the zine is complete!
-I really, truly want you to submit whatever your sweet little hearts feel like making. I’m keeping this fairly open-ended because I really would like to compile a nice variety of content - drawings, fiction, nonfiction, photo collage, personal anecdotes, found objects, whatever you want. Get creative with it! As long as the work can be documented in 2D form, I’m happy to accept it.
I’m aiming to cover the costs of printing the zines exclusively with money from sales and out-of-pocket funds. If it becomes necessary, I will either ask for donations or print a smaller initial run. No matter what, though, a digital copy of the finished zine will be available online. I will try to provide physical copies to all contributors, although I will need your mailing address if you’d like one.
I think that covers all the important points, but feel free to send me any questions through this blog or the email address above! I can’t wait to see all your contributions!
