Hello Queer Nerds and friends,
Things are rolling at FAQNP, as we’re recovering from the launch of Issue_04: Science Fiction & Fantasy.
Of course, we’re not done yet, and ready to dive into Issue_05 on education, just in time for summer vacation.
Call for Submissions for Issue_05: The Education of the Queer Nerd
FAQNP – (FAQNP‘s A Queer Nerd Publication)
– a non-ironic occasional publication for queer nerds and their admirers
FAQNP is a magazine about and for queer nerds who feel outside the mainstreaming of queer culture. The publication covers the ordinary lives and interests of queers, because the ordinary is often quite interesting. Life is full of interesting people, things, and ideas, yet we are at times perplexed and left out by the tepid discussion and outlets of queer culture. The theme of the fifth issue is education. We’re seeking photos and short essays (500 – 1000 words) your thoughts and experience about not only school, but education and learning as well. Teachers, educators, and librarians are especially encourage to submit.
We take a broad approach to the topic, just make it fun, smart, and nerdy.
A more pedantic note on submissions, since this is self-funded project, we can’t pay for your words or art work. We hope that we will able to afford that one day. Submissions need to be original and unpublished. You’ll also have to give us permission to use your submission as we see fit. (We promise to be gentle.)
However, we can offer you, an outlet for your ideas, a couple of free issues, and our gratitude. Photos are great too, just make sure that you take them, and/or have the rights for their publication.
Please send submissions to: submissions at faqnp dot com
Due September 1, 2012.
We would love to hear from you.
