OPEN CALL! “So Nice To Finally EAT You”

So Nice To Finally EAT You
S. N. T. F. M. Y. Issue #2

In May 2007 the Mail Art Collective was created to help people correspond with others and show their art to others all over the world. At the end of its success in October 2008 a zine of art from artists who participated in the Mail Art Collective called “So Nice To Finally Meet You” was created. S.N.T.F.M.Y. was released in March 2009, an edition of 100, and has sold all over the world and was noted by the Philadelphia City Paper.

It’s now 2 years later, and I believe it is time for Issue #2. And what better topic than FOOD?!
So Nice To Finally Eat You” is now accepting submissions. The due date for submissions is December 31, 2010.
I’m looking for food stories, reviews, recipes, photos, drawings, comics and whatever you think would be perfect for this type of zine! The zine will be printed in one color but if you have an idea for something color, please tell me, we can work something out. When do we eat? Well, the release date is Late Winter/Early Spring 2011 accompanied by a zine release party potluck. Stay Tuned…

Please email with all submissions and questions
Mail your submissions to:
