SUMMER 2019 INFO

This page is a resource for Fools Mag members to keep track of regular updates and important links for the upcoming weeks.


THE SUMMER ZINE

please contact creativefoolsmag@gmail.com

WE ARE CREATING A MINI MAG THIS SUMMER! VOL 6.5
Each volume we are faced with the difficult decision to deny many pieces because we have a limited number of pages. This summer, we are publishing a zine that will allow us to show off more of our Fools talent. The digital zine will allow us to have more elbow room to create more work that isn’t restrained to a physical issue. Print and visual work are accepted; previously unpublished artists are especially encouraged.

We will be accepting fully completed works until June 8th through Submittable.

TIMELINE:

June 8th: SUBMISSIONS & VISUAL COMMITMENT DUE

  • All writing and visual projects are due to submittable - these pieces are expected to be fully completed works

  • If you are a visual artist who does not have a project, but are interested in creating an illustration or photograph for a written piece please sign up using this link. This will let the visual team know that you are commiting to create work if we assign you a piece on June 17th. By committing, you are expected to have an illustration or photograph completed by July 1st

June 15th: DECISIONS

  • All who submitted to submittable will be notified whether or not they are accepted

  • Those accepted will be asked to make minor edits to their pieces, but will not have their work extensively workshopped for the sake of simplicity.

June 17th: VISUAL ARTISTS ASSIGNED WRITING

  • Available visual projects assigned to artists

  • If you committed to creating content, please be checking your emails this day to learn your assignment

July 1st: PHOTO AND ILLUSTRATION DEADLINES

  • All visuals supplementing a written piece must be sent to designfoolsmag@gmail.com and cc’d to creativefoolsmag@gmail.com
