New Student Craft Zine Weeks Submissions!

Taking Flight: Inspiration And Techniques To Give Your Creative Spirit Wings (Paperback)by Kelly Rae Roberts (book is in no way associated with NSCZ)


For Immediate release


The National Student Craft Zine welcomes submissions from student artists and writers.

The National Student Craft Zine cultivates critical dialogue among students engaged in formal craft training throughout the United States. Featuring diverse work and writing from fresh voices, the Zine reflects ideas and trends in the field while providing students with a platform for professional development.

The National Student Craft Zine (NSCZ) welcomes submissions for its inaugural issue from student artists and writers actively engaged in making or writing about craft. Owning Craft, this issue's open-ended theme, could be interpreted in a number ways. From collecting objects to students standing up and owning the field, this theme invites dialogue about who owns craft.

Do materials, processes, and techniques own craft by way of tradition?

Do modernist craft artists of the Post-War Twentieth Century have more clout in determining craft's identity?

Do the patrons of craft objects and makers own the craft world financially? Or does the next generation of craft artists own the field as their destiny?

All of these issues are worth exploring, very much on the pulse of the craft world.

The NSCZ is accepting submissions for the following: feature essays, historical essays, artist profiles, new manifestos, and in-print galleries.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: MARCH 1, 2009.

All submissions should be submitted electronically to:NSCZine@gmail.com.

Please specify the nature of the submission (artist profile, feature essay, historical essay, new manifesto, galleries) inthe subject heading.

Questions may be directed to NSCZine@gmail.com.
