Black Folks Zine – Edition 1: Call for submissions
In the Spring of 2018, Marly Pierre-Louis (co-founder of the Amsterdam Black Women group, writer and my dear Sister) and I will release the first edition of our zine. Black Folks Zine is absolutely a work title but let there be no mistake: the writings, illustrations and photography will be about, made by and catering to the Black communities in the Netherlands.
New deadline: February 28, 2018.
Please send your piece(s) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Call for submissions
“The last 10 years have been a rollercoaster with new highs, squeaky bolts and loose belts. There were new waves that (re)claimed our spaces and floods of violence questioning, sometimes even challenging our humanity. The realities – joys, sorrows and everything in between) of being Black in the Netherlands need and deserve to be told.
We’re putting together a zine and want you in it! f you’d like to share your writing, drawings, poetry, essays, comics, interviews, or photographs about your experiences this call is for you.”
