WHAT TO SUBMIT:
Send 2 copies of any printed zine, (minimum page count of 12 pages (including covers) and a maximum page count of 40 pages (including covers). You are free to submit longer work, but I will most likely not be able to print copies for you if your work is selected as the winning entry. Don’t worry too much over the guidelines for page counts, if it’s too short or too long just submit anyway, we might be able to work something out. Include a letter of any length explaining your project and its name, your full name and pseudonym if desired. An email address, home mailing address, and website if applicable. Be sure to specify if you are submitting as a first time zine maker or an old-timer. Let me know what you prefer not to be posted publicly, i.e your pen-name vs. legal-name, address, email, etc.
$150 in one dollar bills.
100 copies of your zine.
