line break: Zine Competition

July 15 - August 30, 2015

A seven-week site dedicated to the poetry of Now! and tomorrow / a pop-up cold brew, pour-over coffee, kombucha, and conversation bar in downtown Denver / a space that explores what it means to be a museum Now!

zine competition
line break exists in momentary poetic flashes, workshops, evenings, and gatherings. The project is intentionally ephemeral, making it possible that little trace will remain tomorrow. Through zines and the zine competition, we invite all line break visitors to document and capture the project and their individual experiences.

Zine, short for magazine or fanzine, is a cheaply made publication, often in black and white, with short production runs via photocopier and bound with staples. Poetry zines allow amateur poets to write and share their emotions and thoughts in a format that can be individualized and more charismatic than popular magazines with larger productions.

This program functions as a cover for your zine, and we invite you to make it your own creation over the seven weeks. Each week, BMoCA will release a new insert for the zine, available at line break cafe and downloadable on The inserts will include the weekly theme, poem, and schedule as well as space for you to contribute your own poem(s), thoughts, or creative content.

At the end of the seven weeks, participants can enter their zine into line break / zine competition for a chance to win one of three prizes.

Submission Deadline: Saturday, August 29 by 2pm
Drop zines off to line break cafe. Zines will be judged and winners will be contacted by Friday, September 4. Zines will be returned to authors by mail following final results.

Zine Title (optional):

Presented in collaboration with The Biennial of the Americas.
