Open Call – Artist’s Survival Guide Chapbook

On May 13, 2014 by admin

unnamedHey artists and writers! Want to be part of an “Artist’s Survival Guide” chapbook?

We’re¬†looking for short entries that relate to artist survival in San Francisco. The book will be labeled as a “survival guidebook for artists”, and will include both very hands-on, practical, and often satirical bits for artists (i.e. a minimum wage budget, a diagram for building a portable studio, directions for making a liquor still out of found objects, etc.) as well as more research based writing pieces. Narratives or short stories would be great too, as long as they’re relevant to the theme of surviving as an artist in SF. Basically, anything that could help an artist think creatively about ways to stay in the city would be great. The piece can be strictly writing, drawing, or both.

It has to be black and white, and I’m looking for just 1-2 pages per artist. Each page is 5.5″x8″, with a .5″ border around all sides.

A 300 dpi jpeg is preferred. I need all submissions by May 30th. Please email entries to

Decisions on inclusion of your piece will be made by June 10th.

This chapbook will be published in conjunction with the “Survival Adaptations” exhibition on view this summer at Adobe Books Backroom Gallery and will be sold at Adobe Books.
