Call for submissions: strange things? Collective's South Tyneside zine

Note: the deadline has now been extended until February 28th 2022. If you have any questions, get in touch!

Are you from South Tyneside and like being creative?

At Washington Mind's Young People's Project, we are putting together a new collection of creative work from young people and want to hear from you.

We're looking for submissions of creative work, so whether you enjoy drawing, creative writing, photography or anything else, we would love to see it. All of the work we gather will be made into a zine (zines are small circulation, DIY publications that can be about pretty much anything) and there is no main theme, we just want to capture your voice. If you want to contribute but aren't sure how, drop us an e-mail and we can help.

To submit your work, we ask that you:

  • are 11-25 years old

  • are from/live in South Tyneside

  • are comfortable with your work being put in print (you can choose to be anonymous if you prefer)

  • send us what you would like to submit by February 28th.

All submissions (and any questions/queries) can be sent to

We've been making zines with young people in the North East since 2017, and you can find out more about them here.
