Only one submission per contributor please.
Paper size: The zine will be printed on A5, and your artwork should fit within these dimensions (148 x 210mm). We would recommend drawing bigger and then scaling down to these dimensions if you can.
Contents: All contributions take the theme of Flight. Although we do emphasise the comic/sequential-art nature of Bear Pit Zines, any combination of words and pictures will be considered.
Finally, we are open to submissions from any and all, but we do ask that the contributor and/or their work retain some kind of connection to the city of Bristol.

Please do come along to the King William (King Street, Bristol, UK) for 7:30pm on Tues the 5th of March to discuss the format and theme of the next issue. We’ll make these decisions together, and in the past has always been both constructive and fun. All are welcome, whether you’ve contributed before or not, and whether you even anticipate contributing to the next issue or not. And if you can’t make it, please do send across an email with any ideas of format and especially theme and we will voice them on your behalf.
