Creative Guts is pleased to announce a call for art and writing for a youth zine this summer. As a nonprofit and a podcast, Creative Guts aims to stimulate and inspire creativity by telling the stories of those who are brave enough to put themselves out there. Oftentimes the bravest are the youngest among us, harnessing creativity and imagination through self-expression. This edition will be a platform for youth to display their work and be part of a creative community.

 

The zine will be available for free on our website, CreativeGutsPodcast.com, in late summer 2022 and participants will receive one free copy of a printed edition thanks to the generous support of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.

 

ELIGIBILITY: Artists from the ages of 0 to 17, from any country, are welcome to apply with visual and written works in any medium: painting, drawing, sculpture, digital art, printmaking, fiber, photography, mixed media, poetry, short story (400 words maximum), etc.

 

FEE: It is free to submit work! Young creators may submit one to three images of individual artworks or writings. Participants will receive one free copy of a printed edition

 

SUBMISSION: Submit one to three images of individual artworks in .JPEG format, or a text document of poetry/prose to the Google form here.

 

DEADLINE: Friday, July 17th, 2022 (11:59 PM - Eastern Standard Time)

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.
