(How cliche. Sorry.)
I was determined to stick to the submission deadline this time, but it looks like I'm gonna have to push it back a bit still.
C'mon everybody - put your knitting down for just a moment and come up with a submission for this upcoming issue of Take Back the Knit. And if you really don't have confidence in your skills, work with a friend, or tell a friend to submit. Some great content has been sent in, but I need more variety.
I need interviews!
I need comics!
I need articles with political content!
I need submissions by men and transpeople!
I need patterns that are punk-rock, or kooky, or however you'd describe the kind of stuff that ain't exactly mainstream (more Teva Durham, less Debbie Bliss, catch my meaning?)! I especially need your standard winter wear - toques, scarves, mitts and nose cozies! You've got patterns, I know you do!
I can't put this zine out without you!
I mean it! (Does anybody want a peanut? I'm beginning to feel like a bit of a maniac with all! these! exclamation! points!))
You've got until Monday August 29 (or even a little longer if you contact me with a proposal by then).
Again, the guidelines are all here.
(Maybe if you're someone who frequents The Church of Craft, Craftster, Action Grrrlz, Mamaphonic, The Revolutionary Knitting Circle or other crafty forums, listservs or groups you wouldn't mind mentioning this on my behalf?)
