Calling all crow lovers! A recent goal of mine has been to lead a collaborative project, so why not a fanzine about crows? I noticed that I always get a little excited when I talk to someone else about how awesome, mysterious and interesting crows are. The zine will have factual information, comics, illustrations, fiction/non-fiction stories, etc. If this sounds like something you’d like to contribute to, DM me or send me an email at [email protected] The deadline to contribute is not till March 1, 2020 so lots of time to ponder your submission! *caw*
