(Cliff Notes: Submit to Openhouselit(at)gmail(dot)com if your art’s “real fucking queer.” Submit to emailSWERVED(at)gmail(dot)com if it’s not.)
First, some info on a cool new website that intends to showcase Wes creative efforts:
SWERVE(D).org is a new website. It wants to share Wesleyan’s creative works. That means: 2D and 3D art, photography, sound, videos, poetry, prose, or anything else you want to submit.
It’s kind of like putting stuff up on your own blog, only it’s public. It’s meant to allow open sharing of the community’s creativity, so that people can show what they’ve done and see what other people on campus are doing. It wants your work to make this happen!
Submit work with your name, class year, title, and desired category to emailSWERVED(at)gmail(dot)com. First submission deadline: October 31st. The site will go live in November.
Secondly, and tangentially related, last year’s popular (I think?) Queer Art zine is coming back with a vengeance. Camara Awkward-Rich ’11 h@s the d33t$:
Queer Art is up and running and hungry for your submissions. We’ll publish at least one piece from every person who submits (within reason), promise.
Things we accept include: Poetry/Prose/Prose Poetry/Short Fiction (under 5 pages)/Comics/Photos/Ideas for a real name for this publication/sheet music/collages/coloring book pages/doodles/rants/your soul/anything 2-D, black and white, so submit your work, whether you identify with the endless acronym or if your art’s just real fucking queer, we don’t care. The best thing to do is give us some things to chose from (3-5 items a person), but that’s not a requirement. Send submissions to Openhouselit(at)gmail(dot) com or Wesbox 90027.
Also also also (last submissions call, I promise), brand new lit mag After Hours is still hungry for your creative nonfiction. Throw ’em a bone, why don’tcha.
