Call for Submissions

The members of Zine Club Chicago love snacks (almost) as much as they love zines, so the group is celebrating their collective snackiness with a collab zine. Send in your writing, lists, comics, drawing, collage & more all about SNACKS!

Updated food pyramids made up only of snacks, an essay about discovering Zapp’s chips on your first trip to New Orleans, a renaissance-style still life of your favorite noshes, a power ranking of the most coveted sleepover snacks of 2000, a poem about your first experience of the munchies . . . if it pertains to the realm of the edible, Zine Club Chicago wants to know about it!

Submission guidelines: 500 words max for writing; 4.5” x 7.5” max, black & white + 300 dpi for artwork. (One submission per contributor, please; you’re welcome to submit images to accompany a written submission, or text to accompany a visual art submission.) Due to space limitations, please limit visual submissions to 2 pages max.


Deadline: July 31, 2022

All contributors will receive a free copy of the zine! Zine Club Chicago is planning for an autumn 2022 release, and will keep everyone updated via the email address you provide.

Co-edited by Rachel Hyman, Liz Mason, and Cynthia E. Hanifin
