These are a few ways you can support Kindred Magazine this fall. There are 11 days left! Plenty of time to figure out who you are, don’t you think? The theme of our first issue is “Who Am I” and we’re looking for prose, poetry, illustrations, photography, collages, painting and anything that will add meaning to that theme for you. Submissions are closing soon, so please head over to http://www.kindredcollective.com to get more information!
1. Ask someone you know OFFLINE to submit to Kindred this month.
Yeah! Get off the computer and find someone who you maybe haven’t spoken to in a while. Ask her to submit her story about who she is. It can be as long or as short as it needs to be. It can be a series of images, photographs or illustration. It just has to be a story and it just has to be in by September 30th!
2. Post a link to a website where we can email our call for submissions.
We’ve already got a working list at Kindred’s headquarters, but maybe we missed one or two or several! Share the knowledge!
3. Tweet, Blog, Facebook about Kindred EVERYDAY until September 30th.
We’re on twitter @kindredmag but maybe you’ve got a wider audience than we do? Again, share this wonderful opportunity with anyone and everyone!
4. Post a link or contact info to a women’s organization we can partner with.
We’re in this for the long haul, y’all. We’d love to get in touch with organizations that are centered around women and serve as a platform for their stories. Do you work with one? Do you know a really good one or two or several? Let us know!
5. Submit your piece to the issue.
This should actually be number one because without your voice it’s really just Ann talking to herself
Somebody went and made mashup of Fela Kuti and De La Soul. God bless you Amerigo Gazaway!
September 30, 2011 will be here before you know it and your chance to be a part of this amazing conversation will be over.
Until our next issue, of course.
Thankfully, there is still time! Head over to http://www.kindredcollective.com to check out more information, or if you are ready, you can submit your works of writing, literature and art to submissions at kindredcollective dot com.
The theme of our first issue is “Who Am I” and we’re looking for prose, poetry, illustrations, photography, collages, painting and anything that will add meaning to that theme for you. I personally will be submitting a short story about me; but I am most interested in hearing from Black women all over the world. Submissions are closing soon, so please head over to http://www.kindredcollective.com to get more information!
