SUBMIT TO ISSUE 3: COMING fall 2019

ALL SUBMISSIONS DUE: AUGUST 9TH

WHO

Seeking service industry affiliated (past or present) artists/writers/creative types (we're pretty open here) currently living in Massachusetts and interested in submitting content affiliated with their experience within the service industry. Bottled up feelings, things you only gripe about with coworkers on a post shift drink. The horror stories of the entitled. The good, the bad, the ugly. This is your place. We are seeking those who can take their experience and channel it into content that packs a punch. We don't ask that you bite your tongue. We ask that you create with the intention to convey your message in the way you think is best.
