PULSE ZINE CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS INFO
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS PULSE ZINE 2013
Many of us have experienced situations where we find ourselves suddenly present, in the moment. In that time and place, we are suddenly aware that we have gone through a type of metamorphosis. Whether changed through experience or finding that part of ourselves which we believed we lost or hid away, we become aware…we awaken.
We invite that you share with us what has been your experiences of awakening. Please consider submitting to PULSE, the Student’s of Colour Collective’s anti-racist zine. For 2013, the theme is awakening. We welcome any medium of expression, including but not limited to collage, poetry, silkscreens, photos, prose, paintings, and even audio/video!
Please submit by Friday March 29 2013
They can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off at the SOCC office, University of Victoria’s Student Union Building (Room B020)
Or mailed to:

We recognize that not all folks who identify as people of colour are “visible” and that all racialized experiences are complicated, and we welcome submissions that highlight this reality. We are seeking to create a space and community where folks with racialized experiences are recognized, honoured and privileged. As such, we would love to hear a variety of voices and encourage all folks who identify as Indigenous people / people of colour including all identities and backgrounds of sexualities, genders, abilities, health and socioeconomic locations to submit!
ABOUT THE STUDENTS OF COLOUR COLLECTIVE
The UVic Students of Colour Collective is a group of self identified students of colour operating as an advocacy group out of the University of Victoria. We attempt to defy the mainstream to act from the margins placing issues of race, gender, and colonization into an anti-racist framework which builds our work, action, and political endeavours. Through Pulse and all of our work, we seek to challenge and oppose systems of racism, ableism, classism, sexism, colonization, cissexism and heterosexism.
Editor’s Note: A Community Submission post results from POC folk submitting their own zine or zine call to be featured on the POC Zine Project Tumblr and other digital platforms. If you would like to share your zine with the POC Zine Project community, here’s how to do it.
When you submit, feel free to add some background, a description of your work and art and your mission statement. If you just send us the name of your zine, we’ll simply link back to a source for purchasing it and use the language you already have on your site.
As long as the zine was created/co-created by a person of color, we will always share Community Submissions. Enjoy!
POCZP accepts anonymous submissions and zine donations from POC. Click here for submission guidelines.
