Submissions are now open for issue #2 of The Ham.
We’re looking for short-fiction, poetry, art, and photography based around the theme(s) of ‘Change & Stasis’. Please see the submissions page for guidelines and further details.
Copies of issue #1 of The Ham can now be ordered online. This first issue contains work from a whopping 51 contributors, and is free of charge – you will only be charged for the price of postage.
Finally, we are very excited to announce plans for a launch party to celebrate the release of our inaugural issue. The venue is the wonderful community owned Ivy House in Nunhead, the date is Tuesday 13th December, and we’ll be kicking things off from around 7.30pm. There will be live readings from contributors, and music from the amazing Whiskey Moonface. The event is free, open to the public, and there will be lots of copies of issue #1 to take away for free. Come along if you can, the more the merrier, it should be a great way to meet other lovers of short-stories and poetry, and to hear some wonderful readings and music. Drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to do a reading of your work too!
Issue #6 of PAPER AND INK is all designed and ready to go and let me tell you… It really is our biggest and best issue yet. Over forty writers and artists from all over the world are featured. There are some amazing stories and fantastic artwork. The only problem is that we now need to raise the funds to get the mag printed. I don’t normally do this but I have turned to Indiegogo for a little helping hand. There are some awesome perks and rewards up for grabs so please lend your support if you’re able to. If you can’t help out financially then please share the campaign on your networks. It would be a big help and very much appreciated!
Here at PAPER AND INK LITERARY ZINE we love to hear what our readers think of the zine, good or bad, all feedback is helpful (Well, most of it). Steve Nash of Sabotage Reviews recently got hold of our fifth issue and had some very kind words to say about it (I promise, we did not bribe or blackmail him into saying such things). Check out the review here.
We would love to know what you thought of the zine, too, so if you’d like to sing our praises or tell us why you hated it, drop us an email at email@example.com
