Oakland Asian Cultural Center is currently collecting submissions for its inaugural zine to celebrate API artists’ work, to capture the wide range of work produced by the API community, and to create a space for artists to connect with one another.
The zine will be distributed to local nonprofits and at various community events mostly within the Bay Area’s API community.
The theme of the zine is “I Am Here,” to build off of the Smithsonian APA Center’s APAHM 2014 theme of “I Am Beyond.”
We are accepting submissions of poetry, prose, photos, and pictures of any drawings/paintings, etc.
The deadline to submit is Tuesday, 7/1. If people are interested in submitting, we also ask that they send us a 150 word or less bio with a high-resolution head shot of themselves.
If they are submitting a poem, we ask that it be 20 lines or less. They can feel free to share 20 lines from poems that are longer.
If they are sharing from a song, we ask that they limit it to one verse from their song if the song is longer than 16 bars.
If they are submitting a prose piece, we ask that it be 200 words or less.
All photos and all pictures of paintings or drawings should be no less than 5 megabytes in size.
All submissions, bios, and head shots can be sent to at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to also email email@example.com with any questions that you may have.
