Artist Call Detail

Call for Submission
For International artists

POST(blank) is a handmade bilingual word-art publication from MadGleamPress, a French-American team of visual artists and poets based in Brooklyn: Clairette Durand-Gasselin, Margaux Taleux, Brian Sheffield and Craig Kite. 

For the first issue, the title and theme is “POST-Paper” (submissions loosely related to this theme will also be considered). We are interested in any material which incorporates both words and image in combination. Examples include word art, typo art, concrete poetry, calligrams, subtitled video stills, and etc. Please note that this first issue is gonna be printed mostly in black&white. For submissions consisting of text or image alone, we will consider pieces which can be printed in dialogue with other submissions on the same page(s). We are also interested in prose such as articles and fiction/non-fiction which explores the theme. 

Please see the photos posted in this page to get a sense of our stylistic preferences and aesthetic theme. 

To submit, e-mail any material to, along with a short blurb about yourself. Also, specify if you want your work to be translated (as the magazine is bilingual french-english). Submissions end July 10th, and we will contact you end of July. 
Submission guidelines: 

  • For poetry, submit up to five poems on a single .doc, .docx, or .pdf document only. 
  • For art, submit up to five images as high quality .jpeg, at least A4/letter size with 300dpi resolution in a single email. 
  • For articles, non-fiction, fiction, etc, submit up to 3 pieces totaling 10 pages in a single .doc, .docx, or .pdf document only.
