THE LINT ROLLER
The moment you said ‘Shit, I guess I need to buy a lint roller…”
-OPEN CALL FOR ZINE CONTRIBUTIONS-
While I’ve been compiling boat-loads of information for the zine about general animal care that I’ve been dreaming up and working on for -actually- ever, I wanted to get a fun smaller project going that is contribution-based.
Here’s the deal:
I’m collecting all of the stories yinz want to tell & we want to hear about you and your companion animal(s) and putting them all together in a nice little (or big) book.
You know - everyone has a wild story about how they stumbled on their companion animal or those “What THE Hell?” / “I wish someone would have told me about this sooner…” / “I can’t believe you got into THAT!” incidents.
Think about all of the good times, the bad times, the disgusting times (remember that time a worm crawled out of so-and-so’s butt?), and the times you couldn’t stop laughing (like when so-and-so got her head stuck in a cup… for a really, really long time).
+ Hand-written or typed; drawings and photos are encouraged.
+ Size should be limited to 8 ½ x 11” paper, but of course feel free to use multiple pages.
+ If you have more than one story or more than one peanut to tell about, send me multiple stories if you want to!
+ This doesn’t need to be about your own personal peanut(s) – could be a foster story, too!
Otherwise NO RULES.
SEND TO email@example.com with “THE LINT ROLLER” in the subject.
BY WHEN? As soon as possible is of course appreciated, but as for a ‘deadline’ - I plan to be in the laying-out stages starting October 1st, so you’ve got a month!
Depending on the response and amount of pieces I receive, this may very well turn into something that I’ll present in volumes!
Get cheesy. Get weird. Get writin’.
Feel free to invite some other people and share! The more the merrier, etc.
