Call for Submissions: Artistica

Just wanted to let you know about my new project (yes, another one!). I hope to see your stories and poems being submitted so here's the idea: I am starting a small 'zine called Artistica and I am excited about including work from everyone in the state!

The 'zine will be a small, chapbook sized publication, printed on 24 weight paper. It will include art, poetry, flash fiction and/or fiction installments and comics or graphic fiction - mostly in black and white, but with some color, especially on the cover. The theme is very loose, but think back to the underground art zines of the 60s and 70's.

  • Previously published work and simultaneous submissions are welcome!
  • Fiction should be between one and two pages in most cases.
  • Longer stories we're willing to print in installments like the old dime story/pulp fiction model.
  • Submit up to three stories for consideration.
  • Poetry should be no more than one page, roughly 30 -35 lines.
  • Submit up to five poems. 
  • Simultaneous submissions and previously published work are fine, but please indicate where the poem appeared previously so we can credit them.
  • Artwork and comic strip submissions should be sent in jpeg or jpg format and we prefer the resolution to be at least 300 dpi. 
  • Submit up to five pieces for considration in the issue or for the cover. 
  • Black and white preferred for the interior and color for the cover.
We'll be reading submissions continually but the deadline for the first issue is August 25th so we can produce the first one by September 1st. After that the zine will come out on a monthly basis. 

Contributors recieve one free copy and the zines will be distributed throughout the state, mainly in Albuquerque. We will hand them out at readings and venues as a way to promote the artists and writers in the state.
Questions, comments and alien propaganda should be sent to me directly at, as should all submissions.
Thank you all and I hope to see your work soon!
Light, love and respect,
