So, because I'm not busy enough, I've decided to try my hand at a 'zine (that is, a self-published magazine-type thing). The first issue, because the embroidery world needs more stuff, will focus around said embroidery. When the time comes, I'll save it as a .pdf, upload it to my webspace, and distribute it to whomever wants it at little to no cost to me.
Here's the problem: I'm crafty enough to fill a few pages, but not a whole magazine. A magazine full of me would get very, very boring very, very quickly. Ergo, I have come to you wonderful people with a request.
The newly-founded crafting 'zine "I made this." is seeking submissions for issue 1: the embroidery issue. One paragraph product reviews (transfer products, stabilizers, floss and hoops oh my!), resources (links, books, pattern sources and other cool stuff), ideas (cool things to embroider on beyond tea towels and pillow cases, unconventional places to look for patterns, etc), illustrations and pictures, badass finished projects, embroidery related articles and essays, and patterns themselves (I've already drawn up a page of Cheshire Cat line art and I'm hoping to do ye olde pirate/ninja/zombie trio next).
I ask that whatever you submit be your own work, and that you tell me what name you'd like me to credit you with. I plan to include some sort of "do not use this content for personal profit without permission from respective authors/do not modify or republish specific content without permission from the respective authors/do not claim this work as your own" disclaimer in the magazine somewhere to (at least try to) make sure all the credit for whatever you submit remains with you.
I also reserve the right to correct spelling errors/typos, but nothing more.
That shall be the extent of my editorial powers.
I hope to get this all together either a) by November 26, which is kind of close for submissions, but which is the end of my fall break or b) by late December, amidst winter break. Whenever I cut off submissions, I'll modify this post.
Edit: Submission cut off date: December 31. Please see page 2 for further details/ideas/what have you.
