    Tellus Zine seeks submissions of art & writing from Greater Cincinnati teens on the theme of “Metamorphosis”

    Cincinnati, OH. February 1, 2021 – Tellus Zine, a digital magazine made by teens, for teens, is seeking creative submissions from students throughout Greater Cincinnati. The Zine is a digital publication that aims to provide a space for diverse young people to express themselves creatively through writing and art. The Tellus Editorial Board is encouraging young adults from the ages of 13 to 21 to submit their artwork in various forms, including creative or non-fiction writing, drawing, painting, photography, video, animation, etc. to be considered for the second annual issue of Tellus Zine. 

    In Tellus’s second annual issue, we are urging applicants to consider the levels of transformation of their community and their own stage of becoming through the theme: Metamorphosis. The word “metamorphosis” connotes both physical and metaphysical changes, human and otherwise. Because today’s generation has had to adopt a sudden maturity that influences the way they perceive the world, the board is inviting participants to explore changes both inside themselves and their society. This theme allows opportunities for visualization and open interpretation, as it is personal and unique to everyone who chooses to tackle it.

    Our call for submissions on the theme of Metamorphosis is now open and accepting submissions at until April 1, 2021.
