    Call for Submissions: Plump the Post

    Plump the Post! is a mail art project centering and celebrating fat queer and trans folks–and submissions are now wide
    open! Please send plush postcards, packages, enveloped things, curiosities, and all other miscellany that can be mailed.

    Plump the Post! welcomes drawings, photographs, scrawls, sketches, typographic art, scribbles, fiber art, self-portraits, collages, mixed media, sculpture, comics, abstract art, and any other mailed creation that reflects queer and trans fat liberation, however obliquely. Identifying as an artist is not required, being a “good” artist is not necessary, not one bit.

    Submissions will be photographed and shared (with permission, attribution, and obscured addresses) via a social media gallery. In Fall 2018 participating mail artists will receive a zine anthology (physical copy) featuring all contributions.

    Deadline: September 19, 2018

    Email plumpthepost@gmail.com to get the address for mailing your work or to ask any questions. Please submit, please spread the word, and please plump the post!

    This project was funded in part by a grant from
    NOLOSE (www.nolose.org), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

    Call for Submissions: Tender Zine Distro

    TZD is a zine distro created to erase stigma around chronic illnesses (including mental illness) and to educate people about what living with chronic illness is like.

    One zine/print a month will be featured and all money raised from each work will go to a different charity.

    Facebook: facebook.com/tenderzine

    The first work featured is by me (Amber is Blue) and it focuses on my battle with major depression. All money raised goes to Lifeline Australia.

    We’re looking for submitters: email amberisblueart@gmail.com for further information.
