Call for Submissions for Postcard Zine

Last year I started requesting submissions for a postcard zine.  I didn’t get enough submissions for an entire zine and I was trying to figure out what to do next. I decided to extend the deadline AND send out personal invitations to submit. If you’re a writer/artist that I enjoy, one of those postcards might be on it’s way to you!

Postcard Zine

The idea is pretty simple.  Each postcard is a submission. Both sides will be reproduced so drawings, stories, collages, rants, copier art, poetry, paintings or whatever can be reproduced in a black and white zine are acceptable. 

So here are the criteria.  You have to send a postcard - 3.5x5″, 4x6″, or 5x7″ preferred.  I really like art on one side and a story on the other, but put whatever you want on there. Both sides are yours to do with as you please, so technically you could lay out 2 zine pages if that’s what you really wanted to do.  The main criterion is that your submission must be mailed as a postcard, not in an envelope.  All submissions will be printed (with the exception of anything hateful: racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, etc.) Deadline is May 1st.

 All contributors will receive a copy of the finished zine.  (Include a return mailing or email address.  If you don’t want it published, circle it or box it in and I’ll black it out before scanning it)

Send submissions to:

Call for Submissions for Postcard Zine

I was doing some cleaning and organizing today and ran across a little pile of Resist #38 that I had printed, but never folded and stapled.  Resist #38 was a compilation of postcards.  Even the front and back covers were postcards that I mailed to myself.  

I’d like to do another one of these.  I like the way postcards force you to condense your thoughts, or your artwork.  You have to take your story and reduce it to the most important parts to get it to fit.  You can sit down and write a few of them over the span of time it takes to drink a cup of coffee.  If you’re doing the artwork too, it’s not an overwhelming size to work with.  You can do up a quick little drawing, or collage, or painting or…
Also, it’s been a long time since I’ve done a collaborative zine, and I’d like to to a new one.  

So here’s the criteria.  You have to send a postcard - 3.5x5″, 4x6″, or 5x7″ preferred.  I really like art one one side and a story on the other, but put whatever you want on there (drawing, writing, collage, copier art, painting,…)  Both sides are yours to do with as you please, so technically you could lay out 2 zine pages if that’s what you really wanted to do.  Postcards will mostly likely be reproduced in black and white, so keep that in mind.  The main criteria is that your submission must be mailed as a postcard, not in an envelope.  All submissions will be printed (with the one exception of anything hateful: racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, etc.) Deadline is January 1st. 

As an incentive, the first 15 contributors will receive a copy of Resist #38.  All contributors will receive a copy of the finished zine.  (Include a return mailing or email address.  If you don’t want it published, circle it or box it in and I’ll black it out before scanning it)
