** Call for feminist comics! **
The next Kuti (#40) will be co-edited by the Femicomix Finland collective. We want to present feminist and queer comics / authors / collectives from all around the world. Send your antiracist/queer/feminist comics with an English translation to firstname.lastname@example.org before 15 April 2016.
– Comics must be previously unpublished in Finnish
– In colour or b/w
– Page size 26 x 39 cm (please consider it’s BIG, equal to almost A3)
– Strips, half-pagers (landscape & vertical), one page, one spread
– Send to: email@example.com before 15 April 2016
Please note: We usually get 100+ submissions for each magazine. The space is limited (usually 16-24 pages) so we cannot guarantee your piece will be included. However, FEMSKT has other publishing plans as well. In case we would like to use your stuff on some other project later, we will ask you case by case.
Who are we?
FEMICOMIX FINLAND aka FEMSKT is a collective of feminist comics artists and activists. We do workshops, events, exhibitions, publications, publicity, socialising and support.
Femicomix Finland is antiracist, inclusive, and aims to make all activities accessible to persons of all genders, races, and physical abilities. The group respects everyone’s right to self-definition. Anyone into antiracist and feminist comics – be it creator, reader, or otherwise interested – is welcome to join!
KUTI is a quarterly 4-colour tabloid focusing on comics and their authors. The main readership is culturally active young adults. Kuti does not present any political or religious connections.
The magazine is circulated through cafes, galleries, comic stores, schools, restaurants, book, and comic fairs. In Finland the circulation covers ca. 250 places in 13 cities – Helsinki, Hämeenlinna, Tampere, Turku, Lahti, Joensuu, Jyväskylä, Kuopio, Oulu, Pori, Imatra, Seinäjoki, and Lappeenranta. Kuti is also distributed abroad in several countries through our partners in crime.
