Fools Magazine is published biannually. Fools Magazine’s first general meeting of the Fall 2019 semester is TBA.


THE SUMMER ZINE

If you have issues with the submission form/link please contact eicfoolsmag@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 of limited 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 Print and visual work are accepted; previously unpublished artists are especially encouraged.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. SCROLL AND CLICK BELOW TO SUBMIT.
