Chapbook Submission

WE ARE OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS. 

Theme - African Politics

Politics, although we fail to admit it, rules our lives, determines our future and well being. It can be a source of happiness, joy, disdain, sadness, misfortune, and even ambiguities. Unfortunately, we live in sad times. Over the course of African history, politics has been the major bone of contention. In modern times, politics has ruled the day. But there is a rot, a deep one. For this reason, we have decided to select African Politics as the theme for the 2nd issue of our biannual chapbook. Tell us about the trends, the old, the moving. Tell us what African Politics puts you through. Tell us of politics below and beyond the national, state or local levels. Trace a map of how you feel about the politics in your home country, in your family, in your identity, in everything you care about. And let me tell you this: We will be here to listen. Remember, your voice matters.

Chapbook Submission

About

As a community of fledgeling artists, we cannot ignore the abnormalities society constantly throws at us. Amid the chaos, we raise our voices to our burdens. 

Artmosterrific’s biannual chapbook attempts to uplift the voices of young artists. Like the rest of the community, it attempts to create a pallet of voices speaking against or about the variety of problems we face as a whole. 

Communality is such a powerful tool that we find it impossible to ignore. Alone, we are nothing, together we stand firm against the disdain and injustice pitted against us. And over and over, we see the need to pick up each abnormality – one by one, one after the other – to dismantle, dissect, and speak our truth.

We will publish two issues per year (January & July), each with a theme or themes. They will be curated by Funmilayo Obasa with regular inclusion of guest editors. We particularly encourage every young artist to submit. Art is diverse, it has no boundaries. Your voices are valid.
