The Song Between Our Stars is a zine for 2020. It hatched as a covidzine: a way to generate revenue and interest for artists cutoff from studios and/or sales venues. It was to be a printed zine people could enjoy where ever they are, which they could share, and enjoy without a screen.
2020 had more in store than just a three month quarantine. We held back: we feared redirecting attention away from the important work happening in the US vis-a-vis the rights of American BIPOC and folks reckoning with the past.
So much of coping with life is listening, managing emotions and expectations, and telling stories. So much of art and writing is listening, managing emotions and expectations, and telling stories.
What stories are told about lived events are as important as the events themselves, and as they endure rather longer, the stories are arguably of grave importance. Statues are coming down. New flags are going up.
We seek your entry of original artwork, and written work, now, through the end of 2020. Your piece must have been created during 2020, and may address any subject. You may enter up to three pieces. All your entered works do not have to be submitted at the same time, you can send one now, and another later.
When you are ready, please send us your selection/s.
