SproutZine #6: We Want You! was originally published on 21st August 2015 and is by Sam Sprout (Editor).

We’re currently putting together a physical magazine called TheSproutZine.

We’re going to print 10,000 copies of it and distribute them all across Cardiff.

And we’re after contributors.

That’s things like:

  • writers
  • photographers
  • opinion-spouters
  • artists
  • interviewers
  • designers
  • scribblers
  • thinkers
  • and cool people

SproutZine #6 will have the theme of shopping – but, as you’ll see below, this is open to your interpretation and creativity – and the deadline to get your stuff in is has been extended to 9am on Monday 12th October 2015.

To enter work for the magazine, you can either submit it to the website like a normal article or email it to Sam@TheSprout.co.uk.

If you’re wondering what to write or draw about, we had a SproutZine meeting a few weeks back in Cardiff Central Library Hub and bounced some ideas around. A Scrounger’s Guide To Cardiff, young people’s consumer rights, and self-service checkout machines were all mentioned and you can find the notes, including ideas, from the meeting here.

But we’re after everyone’s ideas and views, so get writing on the theme of shopping or share ideas in the comments below, on theSprout Editorial Group page on Facebook.

TheSprout.co.uk is your website and TheSproutZine is your magazine, so get involved!
