call for submissions: Burner
- ISSUE 03 CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Burneris that girl. She's witty, pretty, and doesn't dumb herself down. Byday, she's a kindergarten teacher and by night, dances gogo. She's thechick who soundtracks her days with Wagner, and goes out to see TheWarlocks in a grungy downtown bar at night. She saves Bach for rainymornings, The Beatles for sunny afternoons. She's a muse and amusing,compelling and never complacent. She gets her greatest inspiration fromthe sounds, images and words that the world has produced, and certainlycan't live without music.
Burnercontributors' work gets your blood pumping, heart racing, and inducesliterary, musical, visual crushes. You don't need to be of the fairersex to contribute, nor should your submission necessarily have anythingto do with women's interests or issues. We're not ruling that out;we're not ruling anything out. The Burner woman, after all, could justas well be a man. (An angel-faced, Rimbaud-spouting, great haircut kindof man who maybe-probably listens to The Libertines, but a man all thesame.)
BurnerIssue 03, set for release March 1, 2011, will be MUSIC themed. We'reinterested in science, art, truth, conspiracies, naturalism, cyborgs,music, beauty, sex, and everything in between, so long as you in someway, shape or form relate it back to MUSIC: your most powerfulexperiences with it, how you interact with it on a daily basis, the dayyou heard the first song that broke your heart - go wild, dearestcontributor, these choices are yours to make. We will, however, tossyour submission into the proverbial wastebasket faster than you can say'Exile on Main Street' if it even remotely resembles the uninspired andpretentious academia which so bored us to death we had to create ourown magazine.
