48 Hour Magazine Project Begins NOW

You can stop holding your breath. The moment has arrived. The 48 Hour Magazine Project has commenced.


Submit any content in the spirit of this theme. We’d love to have something you’ve made already, but we’re most excited about having you create something right now. Art, photography, fiction, nonfiction, poetry, film — anything goes. Email your submissions to 48hourmag [at] gmail [dot] com(For visual art & photography submissions, please include a title and brief description of your work). Submissions are due at midnight!

To get your creative juices flowing, we’ve included a number of prompts below to help get you thinking along the right lines. Some are fairly simple and others are more involved. We encourage you to take risks: Go out and talk to people. These prompts are just jumping-off points. Deviate from them as you please.
