intriguing & unconventional publications

Any and every publication, app, or location that makes me want to be part of their roster. Updates are ongoing:

  1. The Sketchbook Project – buy a sketchbook and fill it up however you want. send it in and it can go on a cross country mobile tour or be checked out of the brooklyn art library for years to come.
  2. Hoot – a monthly literary magazine. On a postcard!
  3. 7×7 – Each 7×7 “invites one visual artist and one writer to engage in a two-week creative conversation. The format, inspired by Surrealist games of the early 20th century, challenges participants to improvise, in their respective disciplines, a spontaneous story that pushes into ever-wilder imaginative terrain. Every finished 7×7 is singular, unclassifiable, and wholly original.”
  4. Twine – an open-source tool for telling interactive, nonlinear stories.
  5. Inklewriter – a free tool designed to allow anyone to write and publish interactive stories.
  6. Art-o-mat – sells original artwork while providing exposure and promotional support for artists in converted cigarette vending machines
  7. The Wax Paper – A quarterly printed broadsheet of “still images and moving words.”
  8. Broadsided Press – You submit a short piece of writing and an artist calls dibs on it. Then the literary/visual collaboration will be posted there for you to download. FREE. And people will post them in cafes, hallways, and elsewhere. NEAT.
  9. The Head & The Hand – sells chapbooks in vending machines in Philly and elsewhere.
  10. The Creativity Caravan‘s Tiny Book Show – while the huge tour of miniature books is long over, they have small shows. One of them coming up is in Hudson, NY at Drop Forge and Tool, and they have an open call WHERE THEY WILL ACCEPT ALL THE BOOKS and the deadline is May 15th. I hope to create a tiny one and submit it, but we’ll see. I should try my hand at it anyway. And I’d like to attend the show itself and see these mini books but it’s so far away. I wonder what else there is to do there?
