20x20 Magazine Issue Two - Call for writers and visual artists | 20-Mar-09


Issue Two - Call for writers and visual artists
Submissions Deadline approaching !

20x20 magazine is a square platform for writings, visuals and cross-bred projects. Rather than on a theme, each issue is assembled around meta-words to be interpreted, researched, illustrated according to a loose, wide and multi-angled perspective. The intent is to create homogeneity of spirit within each issue, without the restrictions of a 'theme'.

20x20 magazine includes three sections:
WORDS ? in the shape of fiction, essays, poetry
VISIONS ? drawings, photography, visual projects
the BLENDER ? where words and visions cross paths

The first issue was launched in November 2008, you can find samples of its contents at:
Due to the current economic situation we have decided to publish issue two of 20x20 magazine in PDF format, which will be downloadable on our website.

Submission guidelines
The magazine format is 20x20 cm, it consists of approximately 70 pages and all graphics are in black and white.
The meta-words for issue two are: HUNGER FOR DISTRACTION.
Writers are invited to submit works up to 1,500 words. Please submit up to 3 written pieces or poems.
Visual artists are encouraged to submit images keeping the format of the page in mind. Please send high resolution images (300 dpi).

The deadline for sending submissions for issue two is Monday 30 MARCH, please send material via email to

We regret that at present we are unable to pay authors for their work, however each successful contributor will receive a complimentary copy of the magazine (bear in mind that issue two will be in PDF format).

20x20 Magazine is a project by Giovanna Paternò and Francesca Ricci
