Fall 2022  Zine

Title banner.jpg

Creative Guts is pleased to announce a call for art and writing for our Fall 2022 Zine, with a theme of Blue. As one of the three primary colors, it is the most beloved color in the world. Blue can evoke feelings of harmony, faithfulness, confidence, distance, infinity, the imagination, cold, and sadness. We are interested in how artists and writers feature the color blue in their work and what it represents to them.

 

The Creative Guts team aims to stimulate and inspire creativity, by telling the stories of those who are brave enough to put themselves out there. This zine is another format where creatives can share with the world what they make, while motivating others to do the same. Physical editions of the zine will be sent to participating contributors and available for purchase to non-contributors, while digital editions of the zine will be available for free for all on our website, CreativeGutsPodcast.com.

 

Guest juror Angie Lane, Executive Director of the Red River Theatres, will be joining the Creative Guts team to review submissions for this edition. All accepted artists/writers will be notified in mid-November.

 

ELIGIBILITY: Creatives 18 years and older, from any country, are welcome to apply with visual and written works in any medium: painting, sculpture, digital, printmaking, fiber, photography, mixed media, poetry, short story (400 words maximum), etc.

 

FEE: Submission to the Zine is free, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Little River Oriental Rugs, based in Concord, NH.

 

SUBMISSION: Submit to our form with one (1) to three (3) images of individual artworks in .JPEG format, with at least 300dpi, or a text document of poetry/prose. Please include your name and the title in the file name: “First Name_Last Name_Title of Artwork”.

Creative Guts would like to thank Boys & Girls Club of Manchester and Kimball Jenkins for their partnership on this zine as well as the 2022 Youth Zine Celebration, which gives local zine participants an opportunity to connect with other young creatives for an art lesson, poetry, and celebrate the work they contributed.

Fall 2021  Zine: Nostalgia

Creative Guts is proud to present our our Fall 2021 zine, with the theme of Nostalgia! 

It’s been an odd time for the world during the last year and half, and creatives are continually finding ways to process our new landscape. We believe harnessing sentimental associations of the past in creativity can help makers get through the tougher times the world has been experiencing of late. While the Creative Guts team knew we wanted to focus on a theme related to time for this edition of our zine, it wasn’t until our recent interview with digital artist, Jake Romano, that we realized Nostalgia was just the theme we were longing to pose to the world.

We'd like to give a special thank you to our guest juror Mike Durkee, the artist and owner of Durkish Delights Design Co., as well as a Creative Guts Board Member.
