Submissions wanted! NEW Journal of the OV People’s Library

We’re looking for regular people, protesters, people outside the movement, academics, poets, artists and anyone else looking to share their stories, feelings or thoughts in a creative form.

We’re looking for original:

  • Works of writing (please keep in mind that shorter works are easier to say yes to!)
  • Cartoons
  • Poems (and Pomes)
  • Drawings
  • Mementos of the awakening around us.
  • Anything that would look good in black and white on newsprint!

Please include:

  • Your name, nom d’guerre, pseudonym or secret agent handle;
  • yada-yada
  • anything else you’d like to attribute to the work
  • nice handwriting is appreciated, and please use pen for this.

To submit:

Submissions are accepted at The Library’s book return bin. Please leave your submission in a sealed envelope with the words “original material for library publication – hold in returns for editor” clearly marked on it. Not all librarians will be aware of this.

UPDATE: While we prefer in-person submissions, If you’d like to submit electronically, please send your submissions to ovpeopleslibrary@gmail.com.

We’ll put your work out to the public for feedback on what we should publish. Please note that all submissions will become a part of the library.

    No way to contribute electronically? Alas…I prefer to not use snail mail.
