Hi all - excuse the spam, I am posting this in various places. Anyone
of an artistic bent on here who would like to be involved, please get
in touch. Cheers! Tim
I am in the process of making a little fanzine-y thing to be
distributed around town and the interweb, and I need submissions from
people who would like to write / photograph / draw / paint / whatever
something for inclusion.
The whole thing is intended as a celebration of appropriation:
including inspiration, quotation, parody, homage, and blatant
thievery - so what i need is for people to produce a 'work' - be it
visual or textual in nature, that takes something pre-existing (a
song, photograph, story, poem, picture, anything) and creates
soething new from that starting point.
For this to work, I need as big a variety of material as possible -
it doesn't have to be technically brilliant - if anything i'd like to
see more 'amateur' stuff included, so please, iif you have any time
to spare, please give this some thought and send me something. I will
print your name and contact details / web site address / whatever
next to your work - so you will get recognition and perhaps the
possibility of further work from other people who see the 'zine, as
well as the warm, fuzzy feeling of having simply taken part in
something really special.
The only criteria for submissions are that they should reflect the
theme given above, and should be reproducible in black and white on a
maximum of one A5 side of paper.
The fanzine (and all work published) will be released under a
creative commons BY-SA license, rather than traditional copyright.
This essentially means that anyone can use the work for any purpose,
and can create derivative work from it without having to seek
permission, as long as you, the author, are credited, and they make
their work available in the same way. If you are not happy with this,
please don't submit anything. More information is available here:
