Splurge is currently looking for submissions for the next issue. If you'd like to have your voice heard, read through the submission guidelines below and see what you can come up with! We look forward to seeing your work!
SPLURGE welcomes any and all critiques, comments or ideas concerning the nature of the articles, the general effect of the publication personally or otherwise, and even on the zine itself. We also encourage submissions of anything you feel worthy and fitting within future issues of a literary, photographic, otherwise visually artistic, or sardonic nature. And Besides. The worst we can do is find out where you live, break in, and leave a cordial note of how and why it didn't fit on your fridge.
_MANDATE: SPLURGE is a Zine that decodes and defaces the ostentation of contemporary consumer culture; pulling back the thin veneer of our so called "Modern" existence to show the ugly truth of what lies beneath our daily actions and inactions, revealing the depths of depravity inflicted by this disney-replica of reality that demands the sacrifice of the real for the hyper-real. Their price is cheap: just everything you are.
_LITERARY: Prose, Poetry, Fiction, Non-fiction, and Creative Non-fiction are all acceptable. No set essay structure needed, quotations optional (although citing of web/publication sources are encouraged if used). Hold no punches. It can include personal experiences, observations, anything. Most important is your thoughts and feelings on the state of society and the effect of consumerism on modern culture. Please limit word count to 2000 words or less.
_PHOTOGRAPHIC: Photo Essays, and Portfolio's Excerpts are both accepted. Please send HI-RES scans of the piece(s), no originals please.
_VISUAL ART: Any art excluding that of a Photographic nature is accepted for possible inclusion as background for page spreads or inclusion elsewhere throughout the publication. Please include along with the piece any suggestions you may have for possible use. Please send HI-RES scans of the piece(s), no originals please.
_CLASSIFIEDS: Classifieds of a socially/politically relevant and sardonic nature are accepted for use in the classifieds section of SPLURGEZINE. Please no derogatory, defaming, or hateful speech.
