It's ALIVE!!! Poetry Comix #7

After a two year hiatus, Poetry Comix returns like a bonk on the head! Issue #7, long awaited, will be on local countertops soon (try Strange Maine!).

Now that that's out of the way and off to see the world on its own, I am looking for submissions for #8.

The guidelines are very basic:
1. Art should be 8 1/2 x 11 (one piece per issue can be 11x17 for the centerfold) and photocopy-ready. It can be up to 4 pages in length, if it needs to be, though most folks stick to 1 or 2 pages.
2. What do you do? Well, pick a poem, song lyrics, or a lyrical fiction excerpt that you would like to interpret visually, and go to it! We're pretty liberal here. Have fun!!!
3. Submit by JULY 31st and mail to me at:
Michelle Souliere
Poetry Comix
P.O. Box 8203
Portland, ME 04104

You could also get away with dropping it off at Strange Maine care of Brendan or Michael or whoever else might be working. Email me with any questions! michelle.souliere(AT)

Poetry Comix is a black and white zine that is distributed in the Portland, Maine area and elsewhere free of charge. And it's a good way to get up off your butt and do something FUN!

If you miss the July 31st dealine, don't let that scare you away -- send your stuff in and I'll use in the next upcoming issue no matter WHEN you send it!
