Mamaphiles is seeking submissions for issue #4, with the theme of "Raising Hell," from mamas and papas who are currently producing their own zines.
Previous themes were “Birth”; “Cutting the Cord”; “Coming Home” and now its time to shake things up! Raising children is hard work and revolution in motion. From rabble-rousing to rampaging toddlers—feel free to interpret the theme wildly.
We are interested in essays, photos, cartoons, or anything else you can come up with!
Because of space limitations, written submissions should be 1500 words or less. Please include a short bio and ordering information for your zine (these will not be part of the word count).
Contributors are asked to edit their own work. Submissions may be spell-checked and reformatted for consistency. Contributors are given the chance to okay any proposed changes before production.
Mamaphiles is a friendly and inclusive project whose goal is self-expression and mutual support. All submissions are accepted. Contributors are invited to join in the collaborative effort, and are asked to assist with marketing and/or production of the zine when possible.
Deadline for submissions: 1 March 2009.
Written submissions: email as a Word attachment to the submission editor, China – china410 @ hotmail.com. Feel free to ask questions.
Visual submissions: email high-resolution images (300-600 dpi) in .jpg, or .tiff to both china410 @ hotmail.com and the lay-out designer, Connie – anarchohippypunk @ riseup.net
For all submissions, please indicate that it's a Mamaphiles submission in the subject line of your email message.
