We are now taking submissions for The Concern. A Magazine, issue 2, which will be published this fall. Unlike issue 1, which was entirely black and white, xerox printed, this 2nd issue will allow for color pages, but still printed with a DIY touch. We are looking for submissions that relate to being concerned about something, it could be anything. It could take the form of writing (poetry, articles, short stories) or artwork (drawing, collage, video stills, photography, etc). Though we can’t say we will accept all submissions, as a curated bookstore, this magazine will also be a curated collection. Please submit something to theconcernnewsstand (a) gmail, by September 15. Thank you!
We are excited to announce our first ‘giveaway’ produced exclusively by The Concern Newsstand.
