ourself zine: call for submissions
The 1st issue of ourself zine interviewed queer lovers, friends, dating apps users, and more. For our 2nd issue, we will look at the theme of “family”. We are excited to invite collaboration and submissions from the Hong Kong queer community in response to the question - what does family mean to you as a queer person? You are welcome to submit a personal essay, letter, notebook fragments, or illustrations.
Submissions are open from now until 10 January 2022. We are looking for short pieces in any form (one poem // maximum 800-word prose // an illustration) as a part of this collaborative online project. Works in both Chinese and English are welcome. Selected works will be posted on ourself zine’s social media and archived on our newly launched website (ourselfzine.com). Anonymous submissions are also welcome. Some pieces will be selected for print.
- Please send your work to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10 January 2022 with your work attached. Please also include a brief bio of yourself in the text of the email.
- Due to copyright issues, we will not accept work that has previously been published.
- Enquiries: Email email@example.com or inbox @ourself.zine on Instagram

第一期ourself zine訪問了酷兒社群中的情侶、朋友、活躍於交友平台的朋友...... 來到第二期，我哋希望邀請酷兒社群以 「 家庭 」 為題，遞交文章、書信、筆記或插畫作品，回應一條簡單的問題：對你而言，甚麼是 「 家庭 」 ？
