Hippospit blog

Hippospit is a travel blog, created by a creative person who has been on the road for two years.

Currently, hippospit is accepting submissions from artists, writers, and other creatives who have something to say about the places they’ve been.

To be considered for publication, please send a jpeg, google doc, or pdf of your completed piece. The more artistic, unique, and insightful, the better. I don’t care where you’ve been - you can submit a comic about a night you spent in a Motel 6 while driving across Iowa to visit your aunt - so long as it’s unique and well-executed.

Also, you must have a PayPal account to be compensated for your work. Hippospit pays between $15-35 per accepted submission, depending on the complexity of the work.


Open call for works in writing that address queer performativity & corporalities. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Bar Riots, El Sotano Art Space invites New York based writers, poets and artist to submit work that engages with the concepts of queer revolutions. The purpose of this exhibition is to vocalize and show the different ways in which queer communities and queer individuals enact resistance, revolution and rebellion; from their own corporality, individual and community actions, materialities and performativity. Thinking of Queer Revolutions as something that starts in the viscera, sweats through the skin and filters into the streets.

Artists will be given the opportunity to perform a live reading of their piece on July 12th.
