Hi, I wanted to pass along this invitation to contrinute to SPACER, a new zine. All the details below. If you have any questions feel free to get in touch with Eli, who is organizing the zine at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd like to invite you to contribute to the first issue of SPACER, a new zine that I'm making this summer — but only with your help!
SPACER is a free, collaborative publication about the places we inhabit everyday and the environments we build with one another.
Each issue will suggest a fragment of an imaginary atlas, capturing elements of the spaces we interact with on a daily basis and looking for connections between them. Unlike a traditional atlas, which catalogs and prioritizes "points of interest," or a Web tool like Google Maps, which strives to represent the entire world in 1:1 detail, SPACER is intended to empower a few interconnected humans at a time to share a little bit about the places of our lives.
I'd be incredibly happy if you decided to contribute something to the first issue of SPACER: Common Sounds.*These impressions could be serious, funny, long, short, wildly theoretical, utterly literal or totally silly. Feel free to send in words, pictures, drawings, comics, collages, lists, found objects, interviews, poems, etc. If you have any questions or thoughts, just holler.
Submissions are due Sunday, August 26 (to this email address or via in-person hand-off). SPACER will launch early this fall, alongside the debut tape by good buds Great Mason, at a Brooklyn shindig TBA. Stay tuned! Of course, please feel free to spread this to anyone you think might be interested.
Thanks for reading!
Till soon —
* The title of the first issue, "Common Sounds," is drawn from a poem by W.B. Yeats, "To the Rose upon the Rood of Time." In the poem, Yeats asks for "a little space" so that he might "hear common things." What do you hear when you've got a little space?
