FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
We are always looking for submissions and Coven Congress attendees. If you are interested in either of those, fill out the form on the contact us page. Or, at the very least, read the zine! We are very proud of our work and the work of our authors, so we would love to share it with as many people as possible.
WHAT CAN I SUBMIT?
We encourage you to submit both digital and physical art, poetry or short stories (fiction or non-fiction, Max 1,200 words) that fit within the theme of our current issue. Previously published work is accepted. Please allow a minimum of two weeks to hear our response. If accepted, we may send editing suggestions. Editing is always at the artist’s discretion and will not be published without consent.
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE COVEN CONGRESS?
At coven congress, womxn gather to discuss their experiences. Questions vary depending on the issue but are always centered around gender issues. The host will record conversations and use them to inspire content for the edition. Attendance is voluntary but understand that anything you say at the event may be published anonymously at any time. Due to COVID-19 all of our Coven Congress meetings will be over zoom until further notice.
HOW DO I GET A PRINT COPY?
They Call Us does not currently sell printed copies of the zine due to the high cost of printing materials. If you are interested in helping us reach our goal for printing funds, sponsor us on Patreon.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THE FUTURE?
We plan to publish more editions and to host more readings and coven congress events. Visit our events page to see what’s coming up.
WHY DO THE TITLES CHANGE?
Each edition focuses on a different theme. The theme is addressed in the title by the adjective chosen. Our experiences are varied and thus offer an endless amount of topics to discuss.
MY WORK GOT REJECTED, WHAT DO I DO NOW?
Keep making art! While it might not have been a good fit for us, someone else could love it. And always remember to submit for future editions! It may just be that your work did not fit our current theme. Also check out submittable for more opportunities and submit again for the next issue.
