Call for submissions: ISSUE 7 "Vanity"
***UPDATE*** - SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS NOW 30TH MAY 2022!!!
It's been 2 years since our last PRINT issue!!!
But the rumours are true, we are back. 2021 was a busy and chaotic year - both experimentation and rest were needed. And that's exactly what we did. But as 2022 progresses and marks our 5th year of existence, it's time for another sweet-thang issue in physical form. Please note: this is separate from submitting your work to our online blog. There is no deadline or theme for online submissions and we accept them on a rolling basis. Please see here for online submissions.
The theme for issue 7 is Vanity. As an interesting and provocative topic, I think this issue is going to be wildly creative and exciting. You are free to interpret this however you want, but here is some inspo for you (Swipe) -->
I hope this list sparks something in you, fellow reader. Issue 7 is going to be iconic! There will also be a launch party in the summer, where the dress code will be "whatever you feel your best self in", so keep that first week of June free y'all!
