Interested in becoming a pen pal?

With every new edition of Bnieuws, we ask our readers for contributions. In the past, we've done this by maintaining a mailing list of 'pen pals', whom we contact when we are starting a new edition. We will continue to do this, but the call for contributions for every new edition will also be shown below on this page. We leave the choice to you: if you'd like to be emailed when we are starting a new edition, sign up below, otherwise, you can find the theme for the upcoming edition below!

For the theme of the new issue, we reached out to our audience for some suggestions, and after some discussion about which concept/thingy/idea evokes both radical and satirical outcomes, we chose MISTAKES for the 55/05 issue.

“OOPSIE DAISY!”, exclaimed in total shock. Shame and self-deprecation are the feelings we experience when we make a small mistake. But when we zoom out a bit, away from the personal square we’re in, what are the mistakes that have brought along blissful celebration, inventions, and happy accidents? And what are the mistakes that have brought nothing but pain, grievance, and hatred?

The deadline for a contribution to this theme will be Monday, June 6th, 2022 (an easy date to remember). Being a pen pal means you can write, draw, take photos, make poems, collages, etc. as long as it can fit into the theme. The process is simple:

  1. Reach out to us about your idea/draft through email or Instagram
  2. We give feedback
  3. You submit the final draft with the media/image of your choice.
  4. We do final edits and share them with you.
  5. You approve the final edits
  6. FINISH!

Please enjoy pondering on the theme and start creating!

Deadline for submissions:

June 6, 2022
