The new theme is RED! As an international magazine we are interested in learning what the color red signifies to different cultures as well as individuals. Go as broad or as specific as you desire. Red is bold. It is a color of celebration, life, love, violence, luck and so many things depending on what part of the world you are in. It is a visual language that unleashes specific feelings depending on circumstances. Explore the color red with us and send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org . Special shout out to the smarty pants @geenatron for guessing our new theme!! . . . . . . . . #callforsubmissions #callforartists #callforwriters #callforphotographers #zinesubmissions #internationalzine #tskc #fotographías #escritores #artistas #todosdeartes #allmediums #😊 #submit #beapartofourcollective
