TransLash Zine Vol. 7 Call for Submissions: Black Trans Artistic Legacies

TransLash Zine wants YOUR creativity! We’re seeking submissions from Black trans femmes for Vol. 7: Black Trans Artistic Legacies.

ABOUT VOL. 7: BLACK TRANS ARTISTIC LEGACIES

Black Trans Artistic Legacies, a collaboration with POC Zine Project, will be released digitally and in print to compliment TransLash Media’s Artistic Legacies doc series honoring Black Trans Femmes in the Arts Collective (BTFA).

Vol. 7 will feature art, writing, and photography from BTFA collective members AND any Black trans femme identified people worldwide. The content focus is “ARTS AS RESISTANCE”: any writing (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, etc.), art, and photography that fits this theme is welcome.

Black Trans Artistic Legacies will be released the first week of November 2023.

TRANSLASH ZINE SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

  • Poetry about arts as resistance from a Black trans femme lens ($250 each)
  • Original non-fiction writing about arts as resistance from a Black trans femme lens ($250-$350)

Are you a Black trans femme individual & ready to submit to TransLash Zine? Complete this form by September 30, 2023, and if your pitch is a fit, Team TransLash will be in contact by October 5, 2023. We do accept submissions from folks who want to remain anonymous in the zine, but we still need an email address and invoice details to process compensation.
