and not just any lemon bars . . . homemade lemon bars, courtesy of Zoe!! One whole lemon bar can be yours at the next meeting for the simple price of ONE SUBMISSION FROM YOU (shipping and handling may apply). we are very close to meeting the goal of twelve submissions by tomorrow, so please contribute if you have the chance.
some popular misconceptions about submitting people have been pondering:
1. I DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE TO SUBMIT
submit everything you have that you think would qualify for the zine! people freak out when I mention creativity, but what I mean by a creative submission is one that had some genuine thought behind it - not a selfie, not a simple sentence, not a circle you drew in science. but a submission doesn't have to be something that is museum-worthy or ready for the New York Times. if you are still confused, just know that if you are submitting with a true interest in helping the zine, your submission is probably great and will be appreciated 8)
2. WHAT IS A SUBMISSION?
a piece of writing, poetry, opinion writing, comics, doodles, art, sketches, collage, playlists, photos, interview, and other creative stuff that is raw and opinionated. the submissions will all be put together after the Dec 4th due date into a zine that we will sell in order to publish more issues.
3. WHY DO YOU NEED 12 BY TONIGHT IF THE DEADLINE IS LATER?
the concept of pushing to get twelve by a certain date was to (a) see if you guys could do it (b) get the flow of submissions to start up, and (c) see what we were working with early on. the final deadline for all submissions will be Dec 4th, but it was a good startup for club members to get submitting and meeting a common goal (crap I almost sound like a teacher). oh, and I have been secretly plotting to get a hold of zoe's lemon bars for a while now . . .
so yeah. be like nike and JUST DO IT.
