The String, a free monthly publication showcasing work inspired by and in response to the world around us
Side Street Studio Arts presents The String, a free monthly publication showcasing work inspired by and in response to the world around us. The String aims to create a platform for the voices of those who are marginalized, silenced, and underrepresented in the world of literature and visual art.
This monthly publication has a rolling submission deadline, and we are now welcoming work of many kinds, including: essays, fiction and non-fiction stories, interviews, printmaking, drawings, poetry, and humor. The deadline for our inaugural issue is Friday, June 26th at midnight.
We are asking that current works reflect:
- Pandemic Stories
- LGBTQ+ Pride
- BLM Movement and Local Protest
To begin, we ask that all work and submissions be recent, and made by those within the Fox Valley area. You may submit your info and works below. You will be notified asap if you are to be included in the inaugural issue of The String.
The first issue of The String will be released on Friday, July 3rd, and will be available at many Elgin establishments, including downtown retail shops, restaurants, bars, and at our MADE retail art storefront located at 13 S. Spring Street. For questions please email us at email@example.com.
