Submit your article online

There's a lot to be heard when it comes to art, but do you have something to say? Remember that written work can be submitted to the zine on the submissions page:

Simply send your article with your name or pseudonyme, select the appropriate category, and it will be reviewed. Published articles are credited, and if desired, contain a footnote with the author's information/personal comments. When submitting your article, select one of the following categories in which it fits best:
- Education (school related, tutorials, essays, lectures...etc)
- Entertainment (television, films, events...etc)
- Personal (stories, experiences...etc)

Note: If an artist wishes to write about their own work, it must go under the "Personal" category.

Reviews, interviews, reports, autobiographical texts, tutorials, essays and miscellaneous texts of informative purposes are accepted. All submissions are read, reviewed and taken into consideration before being published. Please keep in mind that most spelling, grammatical and syntax errors are corrected by the editor.

So, why not submit now?

Maintaining your mental health

It is widely known that many artists suffer  from one or several mental illnesses. They may be difficult to live through, but the key is to have as much information as possible on what's going on in your head. Here are a few helpful links:

- The Help Guide offers a good selection of simple information on emotional health, how it works, where to get help, and how to make progress. The perks are mainly that it also covers topics such as every day stress, relationships and sleep...etc providing the reader with easy to understand articles, and case examples.

- The official website for the Mayo Clinic has a good search system, and a well constructed definition of what a mental illness is. It also harbors blogs covering depression and stress.

- Go beyond the myths of self injury with this excellent article, which explains how both adults and children suffer from certain mental states, causing them to wrongly act on the situation. For more information on this, and how to get help visit the source article.

Feel free to post your own links in the comments, and remember that our mailbox is always open so you can contact us to talk or ask questions.

"I've never had tastes of people my own age. All of my friends when I was 15 were in their 40s. I'm not actually mature, just very self-conscious around people my own age because I feel like I'm supposed to act the same way they act and I don't know how."
