So after the positive experience of creating and constructing my Stephen King fanzine, I have decided to undertake another zine project!
I was having a little think last night and I have decided to go a slightly different route…a literary zine of sorts.
I am looking for contributors willing to part with short stories, flash fiction, Twitter fiction, poems, haiku and artwork.
I would like this to be a diverse creative writing anthology which showcases our different voices.
-there is no theme so you can pretty much write about whatever you like
-has to be fiction (or based on fiction in cases of artwork submission)
-can be written in English or Welsh (though I would appreciate if you sent me translation for administrative purposes!)
-short stories up to 1000 words
-flash fiction up to 500 words
-if you want pics to be a part of your piece of writing, send ’em over! Otherwise pics will be added at the editor’s discretion
-I can’t pay anyone but will send all contributors a free copy!
-use of abusive and discriminatory language will not be tolerated
-racist, sexist, homophobic etc submissions will not be used
-I wouldn’t necessarily say no to erotic fiction but anything describing violent or degrading pornographic acts will not be considered
…so you’ve pretty much got a free reign!
It would fantastic if you would like to get involved.
Self-publishing is immensely satisfying and can be as low key/high brow as you want. I personally am a big fan of the DIY look.
I am big believer in, and supporter of, independent creative projects.
I think in a world where we can get easily disconnected from ‘real life’ by technology, it is a great feeling to hold something in your hands and think, ‘I’ve made that!’.
I haven’t thought of a name yet so I will keep you posted! Or email me any suggestions!
