Snippets, a scrappy zine project

About 

 

Snippets aims to provide a home for sketches, fragments, oddities, figments of imagination, bits and bobs, loose threads, and things not yet come full circle. We honour rough, imperfect work. We see the beauty in taking things apart, without yet having to put them back together. We provide an outlet for musings, half-formed thoughts, and strong opinions that may change at a later date.

What is a zine
 

A zine is a small, DIY and self-published work. It is an informal, low-stakes form of publishing that is a good way to build one’s confidence as a stepping stone to future publications. You can find examples of zines here, here, and here
 

What you can submit 

  • Slice-of-life reflections

  • Short poems

  • Writing exercises you completed during the fictioneer circles and workshops

  • Bits of songs and sketches

  • Photographs

  • Musings on public transport

  • Meticulously put-together lists

  • Stuff too short to put into a lit mag

  • Thoughts on consent

  • What you had for lunch today

  • Feelings about God - all your joy, all your gratitude, all your anger, all your rage

  • Things you want to say to people you can’t say them to

  • Thoughts about avocados

  • Feelings about juice

  • The philosophical treatise about clocks that you always wanted to write

  • Impassioned speeches about different-length socks

  • And so on

 

Make it irreverent, make it serious, make it passionate, make it joyful. Drown us in melancholy, and then give us a Helpline number to call. Be nice. Be kind. But keep your edge.

 

You can upload images, documents, and links to audio or video files (kindly do not upload the audio or video files themselves). 

 

Once the maximum number of submissions has been reached, we will collate everything into a scrappy zine and publish it online as a PDF. While the goal for this zine is to be as inclusive as possible, submissions may be rejected at the discretion of the Editor. 

 

A limited run of physical zines will be printed and made available for free upon request. 

 

Rainbow Fictioneers does not earn anything from the publication or distribution of Voyage: A Literary Journal, or Snippets, a scrappy zine project. Donations would be greatly appreciated as they would help to defray expenses (printing, marketing and website fees, as well as admin hours)! 

Gratitude

Snippets, a scrappy zine project, emerged from a conversation with Annaonni, that in turn was inspired by the casual poet library.
