Want your call for submissions included on our list?
Email your call-out to email@example.com (do not send your submissions here).
Subject line: Call for submissions.
About: Jury-free zine project dedicated to all the art that didn’t quite make it.
Pay: Digital copy of zine.
Submissions: Do you have a piece that was rejected elsewhere? This zine accepts any form of art, writing, comics, and music. The only requirement is that the piece has previously been rejected from another zine or publication.
Deadline: April 13, 2019
About: Collaborative zine reclaiming the term “prude” as a celebration of our autonomy and boundary-setting, a refusal of sex-necessary feminism, and a liberation in which our “no” is respected.
Submitters: Spinsters, asexuals, frigid partners, relationship anarchists, sex-working rule-makers, and all other folks sidelined from the “sex-positive” movement are particularly encouraged to submit. Whether prudism is related to our sexual orientation, our trauma, our disability, our spirituality, or none of the above, prude identity rejects a one-size-fits-all sexual empowerment.
Submissions: Visual art, photography, stories, comics, found poetry, diary entries, interviews, unsent letters, prayers, text messages, tweets, and all other printable mediums. Particularly interested in work that engages with prudism in its specificities; in its relationship to your experience of white supremacy, vegetable gardening, psychiatry, parkour, cissexism, and making dinner.
Deadline: April 30
Prize: One-year membership to the Zine League
Submissions: Download the Staple Stanley foldup toy, print him off and build him! Give him some accessories, maybe a diorama, and then send some photos/videos.
Deadline: April 31
Publisher: Thirty West Publishing House
Fee: $12 USD fee (currently there’s a $6 discount that brings cost down to $6.) 6 entry fee until April 20. After that $12 USD.
Prize: $200 and contract for publication
Deadline: April 20
About: Run by Bi Boston Women, an affirming space for women with bi+ identities (bi, pan, fluid, and other non-binary sexualities).
Submissions: Written submissions on the theme is “Getting Older.” What are the challenges/opportunities of being an older bi+ person? How has aging transformed you—in mind, body, spirit, or sexuality? How have you stayed the same? What have been the most significant moments or transitions in your life? For younger folks: What have you learned from older bi+ folks? And no matter your age, what do you imagine your future holds.
Deadline: August 1, 2019
