Common /com‚ÄĘmon/

: (adj) / people or things; shared by, coming from, living for.


In the steam, on the mirror: you wrote so so so . . .
. . .
And the leather of your chair . . . it has me marked
so good luck forgetting. The world was a home.

‚Äď Excerpt from Together and by Ourselves by Alex Dimitrov

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

  • Our zines are dedicated to our Community's (your) voices!
  • Every season we 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 ‚ÜíCOMMON‚Üź.
  • Submissions close midnight Tuesday, October 31st.

Each selected piece is:

  • Rewarded a 3-pack of our wines (Please note that we can only send wine within Australia - but everyone, from anywhere, is still welcome to submit for the pure joy of it!)
  • Featured in our riso-printed ZINE, here on our website, and shared with our community via our mailing list & social media.
