At badhouse we think that there’s a lot more we could all be doing as writers to be more social, more inclusive, and more supportive of each other’s art, so we’ll be encouraging all contributors to get in contact with one another, and ultimately we’re going to try and build a real community around this zine and any others we put out in the future.
To honour this, the theme of this first zine will be “community”. You can interpret this however you like. You can write about how communities can be positive, broken, shallow. You could send a photograph of a community. You can be abstract or literal. You can ignore the theme altogether if your work is exceptional enough!
If you make it, we want to see it! Poems, short stories, essays, visual art — whatever! If it can be printed, submit it!
So if you want to get to know some fellow writers, be there to help badhouse take its first steps, and if you’ve got something relevant lying around or have the time to put something relevant together, send it over to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions will close on January 9th, and we aim to have the zine out there by late January/early February.
