We are currently accepting submissions to our annual group zine. We’re seeking to feature artists focusing on photography, ceramics, collage work, textiles, painting, installation art, and printmaking. We are honored to be curating alongside artist Melissa Grace Kreider for this issue. 

Melissa Grace Kreider (she/her/hers) is a queer artist, photographer, and assault survivor advocate. Melissa holds an MFA in Photography from The University of Iowa and now manages the Photography Facilities at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Melissa’s work and trauma-informed art practice are devoted to examining the systems in place to help or harm victims of sexual and domestic assault on a micro/macro level. Her work has been exhibited and published internationally, and has been reported on by major news organizations such as BBC World News and Wired Magazine

Additionally, Melissa is the founder and curator of Don’t Smile (2016-2021), an online and in-print publication that was dedicated to showcasing photography by women artists.

Guidelines: While the intent of this publication is to feature contemporary artists, we welcome the opportunity to share your written works in the form of poetry and short written pieces.

Each artist may submit a maximum of 5 files to be considered. There is no fee for entry.


Deadline to submit – March 19, 2023

We’re encouraging artists in all stages of their career to submit work to be included in this printed publication. The only requirement is that the artist submitting the work identifies as a woman or as non-binary. Artists maintain all rights to submitted artwork.
