We are looking for trans writers and artists to submit work for our zine about trans embodiment! It can be any work relating to how you define your experience as a queer or trans person. What do these identities mean to you? You will be credited as you wish, even if you wish to remain anonymous!
You can submit to email@example.com or contact us there or through tumblr with any questions!
What do I draw for this? Art Requirements: Anything to do with kisses! It could be original or fan art. It could be a kissing booth, to match the title of the book, but it doesn’t have to be! Kisses on the mouth, the cheek, the forehead, the nose - it’s all up to you!
We only ask that you keep it PG-13 (avoiding gore, explicit sex acts, or …distasteful? nudity.. If you have questions, just ask!)
Please use this template! If you work traditionally, please scan your work and insert it into the template for submission.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS - POMEGRANATE ZINES - DEADLINE JUNE 30TH 2017
I am creating a submission based zine specifically for Jews to share their experiences, thoughts, and artwork. If you are Jewish and have something to say - submit your work! Your experiences and your viewpoints are valuable!
When finished this zine will be available for free online and available in print (black and white) at low cost. (Printed copies will be made censoring all instances of the word “G-d” upon request.)
What sort of things can be submitted?
Content should be somewhat related to the Jewish experience, but it doesn’t need to be specifically about Judaism as a religion. Content can include, but is not limited to, non-fiction, prose, poetry, 2D art, photos of 3D art, comics, recipes, tutorials/how-tos/DIY, reviews of books/movies/shows, essays, journal entries, general musings, opinion pieces, open letters, rants, and short fiction. Be creative! If you are in doubt about it being relevant or “good enough,” send it anyway! I’m nice!
What “vibe” are you looking for?
Anything from pissed-the-fuck-off to touching and sweet, and anything in between or beyond that. I want this project to be flexible. The zine itself will have a cut-and-paste / DIY aesthetic.
Who is a Jew?
This project will operate on an inclusive answer to this age old question. People from all movements, all levels of observance, culturally isolated Jews, secular Jews, and folks who are working with a rabbi in the process of conversion are in this project are encouraged to submit.
Messianic “Jews” / “Jews for Jesus” are Christian and should not submit.
Jews of color, LGBTQIA+ Jews, working class Jews, disabled and/or mentally ill Jews, and any other Jews who are marginalized by Jewish communities or our society as a whole are STRONGLY encouraged to submit their work.
Send all submissions to
Include title of work, type of work, name, and any other identifying information you want included (email or other contact info, movement, personal or professional url, etc.). Submissions can be anonymous by request and all creators will retain the rights to their own work.
Thawra: Calling All Arab Womxn and Non-binary People
الصوت المرأة ثورة / The voice of the woman is revolution
While Ascend is currently on hiatus, Thawra is a special project, a mini project of sorts underneath the larger Ascend umbrella.
We are currently accepting submissions of art by Arab womxn or nonbinary Arab people at email@example.com (please note that this is a different email than our usual submissions email).
Our voices our often silenced, only amplified when they fit a certain agenda. We want to hear your voice. Speak to us–about anything. Thawra does not have a specific theme. Instead, it seeks to be more of an anthology of work by Arab womxn & non-binary Arab people.
For deadlines and submission guidelines, keep reading.
