12:47 am - Synchronized Chaos Magazine invites visual and written submissions

ladycatherina
Everyone in this community is invited to submit work to the literary/artistic/cultural/nature and travel writing/scientific webzine Synchronized Chaos. (http://www.synchchaos.com) This includes novel excerpts - we encourage novelists to provide some description of the project along with the excerpt and a link where the whole piece may be purchased. We also do book reviews for fiction and nonfiction.

Information on the zine and how to submit, from the Facebook group http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=20763137372&ref=mf :

We have four local Bay Area spinoff writers' and artists' groups, free open to the public to drop by and share work for professional critique and marketing advice. Please email me at cedeptula@sbcglobal.net for info, the groups are selected weeknights twice a month in San Jose, San Rafael, San Francisco, and Castro Valley.

The brainchild of some of my friends and colleagues, along with myself, the publication provides thoughtful art/cultural/literary/scientific/social commentary/essay material. Our title comes from the mathematical concept of chaos theory - the study of whether we can find order in systems which seem to be random at first glance, whether anything in nature can be proved to be truly random or whether some systems just seem that way because we don't know enough about the initial conditions. This is a social experiment and a fun way to stay coherent without limiting our contributors' creativity or having to turn away excellent work because it isn't a fit.

10:19 pm - Everyone in this community is invited to submit to a new zine I'm helping facilitate

ladycatherina
Chaos Theory now welcomes submissions for its Summer 2008 inaugural issue - poetry (formal, free verse, or any combination of both), narrative nonfiction, personal experience and slice of life essays, scientific and travel and journalistic nonfiction, short fiction, profiles of and interviews with local or international 'interesting people' or worthwhile projects, graphic art, photography, scanned or photographic images of any kind of visual art, etc.

We are honored to accept work of varying kinds and styles and generally will not turn down submissions unless the content is obscene or hateful and without accompanying artistic or intellectual worth.

For now please send submissions to my email (Cristina Deptula at cedeptula@sbcglobal.net) or comment here with a short description of and a link to your work. We hope to soon designate a team of editors to review various types of material but for now I would be happy to disseminate the information.

Please pass on the word to anyone else who needs a soapbox for his/her cause and can speak coherently about the matter, to anyone else with some unique artistic endeavor, to anyone else who's creating something interesting or elegant or informative and whom you believe should have a larger audience.
