Geek, Fray Issue 2 Call For Submissions


Fray has just put out an open call for submissions for Geek, the theme for their 2nd issue. Here’s the announcement that Derek Powazek sent out:

Fray is now open for submissions for their second book! The theme is: Geek – Stories of People Taking Things Too Seriously.

Geeks aren’t Nerds.

We are everywhere: superfans, wonks, philes, heads, enthusiasts of the sublimely obscure. We are people who care too much about something
others do not really understand. We make the world go ’round. If you’ve ever been into something so much your friends wondered about your sanity, you’re a geek, too. And you’re invited to join us.

Fray, the quarterly of true stories, is open for submissions. There are 3 ways to contribute:

1. Artists! We’re looking for any visual art (drawing, painting, photography) on the theme. What does geek look like? Submit and vote at Pixish!

2. Writers! We want true personal stories, interviews with notable geeks, and articles on the theme. ~600 words. To submit, email geek at fray dot com.

3. Everyone! We’re doing a storytelling survey, asking for true stories from real people. Spare a minute to share yours? Take the Geek survey!

THE FINE PRINT: Submissions close in April. All submissions remain the property of their creators. If your work is chosen for the book, you still own it, we just ask for the right to publish it in the book and online. We cannot pay you, but we will send you a bunch of copies of the book.
