SUBMISSIONS PLEASE!

Yes, that’s right!

[insert text here] are making a zine.

We are aiming for a very (very) quick turn around, so the deadline is in just two weeks from today. That’s Wednesday, May 23rd.

Like most things [insert text here] does, it will have a distinctly home-made feel to it, but that shouldn’t stop us from producing upwards of 50 copies.

Submissions can be poetry in any form, but bear in mind that the pages will be quite small (probably A6, so the size of a postcard), so shorter poems are prefered – though that doesn’t mean we’re definitely ruling out longer ones.

The only other requirement is that you keep it clean. As we hope to place copies of the zine in various cafes, where we can’t control who has access to it, we want something that would be ok for a child or grandma to pick up. That doesn’t mean it has to be geared towards children – just no swearing, please.

The zine will be produced in black and white, so if fancy colouring is necessary for your poem, then maybe it would be better to send something else.

You can submit poems via the submit page on the site (please make sure you say that it’s for the zine in the ‘aditional information section’).

Alternatively, you can email the poem to us at: manage.noordinaryblog@gmail.com

Make sure you put ‘Zine submission’ as the subject header. If you’re worried about formatting, send the poem as an attachment – Word only, please, no tricky pdf files, as we’ll have to resize the text, which is far to complicated for our untechnically minded brains.

As always, copyright remains with the author.

We’re very excited about this, and very much looking forward to receiving your submissions. Happy writing!

Deadline: midnight 23/05/12 (UK time)
