Eligibility:

This is for call content. But it’s not a call for just any kind of content. This is a call for specific content, from specific people. This is a call for content from the lonely, the misunderstood, the anxious, the hopeful, the misgendered, the marginalized, the radical-in-other’s-eyes-but-not-so-radical-in-your-own, the politicized, the relatively unscathed, the visionaries. 

This is a call for the unspoken memories, the thoughts that run rampant, the words that went unsaid, the spiral after spiral, the dirty, the clean, and the (absolutely) in between, the revolutionary, but then again, not so revolutionary after all. 

In the midst of crisis, we seek to inspire and bring beauty to the foreground.

We’re looking to explore what it means to be behind the binary, mentally and emotionally, through art. we are looking for inventive and creative takes on this theme, which inspires reflections on community, mental health, identity, and expression. The purpose of this zine is to not only build solidarity among non-binary persons and their shared experiences, but also to bring allies further into the fold of understanding.

What: a zine. a really great zine! we are pulling together a zine from all kinds of creators in Chicago to accompany an upcoming short film, By a Thread, centering around similar themes. We’re looking to build community in an interdisciplinary fashion. 

Who: Co-editors: Tuxford Turner and Imani Davis

Themes: loneliness, mental health, anxiety, (longing for) community, gender identity exploration, “in between”-ness, 

Media: absolutely anything that can be printed on a page, including but not limited to:

Poetry

Essays

Photography

Drawings & Sketches

Comics

Short Stories

Photos of fashion, ceramics, paintings, etc.

Creator Requirements: be currently living in the Chicagoland area, and be a dope ass human being. ***we ESPECIALLY encourage people who identify outside of the gender binary to apply.

Content Requirements: we are going for a certain aesthetic for the overall piece so keep that in mind for more visually stimulating content such as photography, paintings, etc. Entries of any kind should not exceed 2 pages double spaced. The submission deadline is May 13, 2020. Limit five submissions per person.
