We are looking for writing and art that pushes against the boundaries of capitalism, colonialism, cis-hetero-patriarchy, and speciesism. We are looking for work that is created with intensity or tenderness. We welcome any anarchist and anti-authoritarian writing that you may want to share.
We are looking for personal and emotional reflection essays, local news coverage, local arts and culture event coverage, book or zine reviews, communiques, poetry, short fiction, and visual art. We want to publish writing and art about forces that effect your lives and the lives of people you know, based on firsthand experience. We want to hear about your reflections, retrospectives, projects, and on-the-ground reports about actions. The work should be real, relevant, and local to so-called vancouver and the greater BC area.
We ask that your writing be connected to the subjects you write about either through personal experience or thoughtful research, so that communities don’t feel like someone else outside their community is trying to speak on behalf of them, or to tell their stories without meaningful engagement.
Please include images with your submission, a title for the piece and a name or pseudonym you want the work to be under. We also ask that you send us a complete submission- as in a doc link, riseup pad, or text within the email.
We will copy edit prose to fix spelling and grammar errors. We will avoid any major edits unless you ask us for help! We would be happy to provide any writing feedback if you ask for it.
We appreciate every submission made to us, but there is no guarantee that your work will be published in an issue.
Please email us submissions at [email protected].
