CURRENT TOPIC


...RELEASE...

Wet sand, fleet cloud, an aching urge to fly,
Stars singing of ethereal things.
But I could only gaze into the sky . . .
Then you . . . and wings!

—Translated from an ancient Chinese poet, by Joseph Washington Hall.


The Community Voice is our place to share the wonder of our community. You.

  • After an overwhelmingly wonderful flood of submissions for our special Summer zine, we have decided to make all zines dedicated to our Communities (your) Voices!
  • So, we are currently seeking a diversity of submissions in response to our current topic →RELEASE←, for our next Zine, to be launched in Autumn 2022!
  • We feel like RELEASE says a lot about right now.
  • Approach the topic in whatever way you feel. Respond in text, sound, colour, photos, pixels; there are no boundaries. (Yes, we will find a way to print your sounds!)
  • Submissions close midnight Sunday, January 23, 2022.


Each selected piece will:

  • Be rewarded a 3-pack of our wines.
  • Be featured in our riso-printed ZINE, here on our website, and shared with our community via our mailing list & social media.
