Do you love butts? Great. Me too. The wonderful Emily Partridge and myself will be creating/curating a butt zine!
What we’re looking for:
pretty much anything butt-related that you’d like to see in the zine
must be 300-500 dpi for images
the zine will be half-size 8.5x11 paper so try to make sure your submission can fit within 4.25x5.5 inches
the majority of the zine will be in black & white with a few color pages (most of which are already spoken for)
written submissions should try to fit on one page (special exceptions can be made for exceptional longer pieces)
Deadline for submission is September 14th, 2012. Please email all submissions directly to email@example.com.
Written submissions (poems, jokes, stories, etc.) should be .doc or .rtf files. No length limit, but keep in mind we would prefer shorter pieces so we can jam pack this first volume with a butt-load (pun intended) of stuff!
Comics, illustrations, and other visual media should be .tif or .jpg files, black-and-white or greyscale. We will consider color pieces, but again most of the color pages have been filled.
By submitting work to Ahoy Booty via firstname.lastname@example.org, you give us the right to use it in the print zine and on the Tumblr. If we use your work, it will be credited to you. Please include links to your online presence of choice for crediting. If your work appears in the print zine, you will receive a free contributor copy and a print-res PDF. Contributors are welcome and encouraged to print and sell as many copies as they would like.
Thanks and feel free to reblog and tweet about this and tell your friends!
I would add to this, but Lainey wrote it so well that there’s nothing really to say! we have some great butt artists lined up and I’m really excited.
oh something I actually would like to add: nothing like… creepy, please. butts are awesome and funny and sexy, but don’t spoil the party but sending in candid photos of strangers or something!
I’m pumped to see what you can come up with.
if i can’t come up w/ anything for this, it would be excellent to see one of you in it
Here we see an exotic white man, dressed in the ritual costume of a high-caste “business” practitioner. The unsettling ensemble, with its repetitious patterns and anaemic lack of colour, symbolises the ritual erasure of identity that a young business practitioner (or “yes man”) must undergo…
