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

  • After an overwhelmingly wonderful flood of submissions for our special 2021/22 Summer zine, we decided to make all zines dedicated to our Community's (your) voices!
  • So, every season we now seek a diversity of submissions in response to our current topic.
  • You can 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!)
  • Our current topic (for our upcoming Spring zine) is →ACARONAR←, Catalan for, 'To pull someone closer to you. To cuddle, to embrace, to protect, to caress'.
  • Submissions close midnight Thursday, July 7, 2022.
  • Submit today (see below) :)


Each selected piece is:

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