Issue 5: Lawlessness. Open for submissions!

In this special issue of Pink Cover Zine, guest-edited by Kristen de Kline we will be exploring the theme of lawlessness.

What does it mean to be lawless? To inhabit the spaces of lawlessness? A number of concepts come to mind – exile, anarchy, revolution, criminality – but how do we engage with such zones in our creative pursuits? Do they come from a space of lawless passion? Or a space embodied by something lethal – the nicking of flesh, the letting of blood?

Please fire away your subversive scribblings, your raw unpolished offerings, your fugitive texts.

We want words that bleed   howl   sing   wail.

Lines that crash.

Stanzas that burn.

We also encourage works that are lawless in their forms or composition. Writing/graphics that flaunt with conventions, dismantle boundaries, resist the sanitised, explode the bureaucratic.
