Launch of IndieGogo for our new anthology!

Hi all!

We are VERY excited to announce plans for our new anthology! It is provisionally titled: “One Beat Zines presents: Performance” and is, as you might be able to tell, themed around performance.

Just like with out first anthology, Double Dare Ya, we are running an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign – this time to also raise enough money to pay every contributor a page rate, as well as printing costs. Here’s all the info:

What We Need The £2000 For

As we wrote in our end-of-year blog in 2015, we are only planning to take on big anthology book projects if we can raise enough not just for printing, but also to pay our contributors. The £2000 we are asking for will encompass the printing of 200 copies of an A5 (or similarly-sized) book – and a page rate of £50 for artists, as well as a page rate of £30 for writers.

The Book

The book will be themed around gender, performance, and performativity and will be printed similarly to our last anthology, Identity – on nice matte recycled card and paper stock and will run to approximately 80 pages. It will include a mix of comics, illustration, photography and essays, which brings us to the most exciting part…
