Don’t Look, Issue 7
GIVE IT UP FOR THE FIRST ANNIVERSARY!

Can you believe it? I certainly can’t. This year has flown by – and I’ve had a ball. I hope you, dear reader, have enjoyed each issue as much as we here at Don’t Look have had making them. Keep passing the issues on so we can bring new readers, writers, artists, photographers, poets, and fans to our viral publication. Thank you to everyone that contributed. Don't Look would not have made it this far if not for the dedicated, talented people who work on each issue and who contribute to the minizine. To all those who folded, delivered, placed or left issues for others, I sincerely thank you too.

I bring you, Issue 7, Volume 2:

Don’t Look, Issue 7 - US Version for 8.5×11 paper
Don’t Look, Issue 7 - EU Version for A4 paper

By popular demand (mine), Christine Stoddard contributed the beautiful cover. Jack Lee, fellow editor and crazy, pitched in portentous tale to tickle your gray matter. Paul Storrie, Christine Stoddard and Wren Griffin contributed to our Six Word Stories – something that’s way too much fun. Linn Næss closes the issue with one of her beautiful pieces.

Photo Contest Winner

Lesson learned: keep contest short. Luckily, we had two contributors, but only one winner.

The Winner:


Linn Næss and Una

Runner up:


Tammy Thompson

The Winners need to contact me to arrange shipping. The Runner Up needs to leave next weekend open for a coffee date.

That’s it! See you again in two months. Keep those submissions coming in!

Don't Look, Issue 6
Six issues. SIX ISSUES! We are on issue six looking down the two-month barrel at the one year anniversary mark. The photo contest closes; winner announced in November. As with each issue, this one features some amazing works.



Wren Griffin contributes another stunning, short story we are pleased to present. Full-time English student/dock worker, Todd Larkin, contributed a brilliant, engaging story. Photographer Lee "Gray" Vincent makes his debut with us, and I hope we can see more of his breath-taking pictures. Also new to us, Christine Stoddard is a full-time student and a paid intern at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Her passions are art and writing, which you can see for yourself. Once again, Tobias McVey displays his cunning talent in his latest poem.

The cover is done by a dear friend of mine, a rising artist in his own right, Michael Murray.

Thank you for downloading and reading. Please keep passing the issues on!

See you at Year One.

So, I'm a little late.
With less than a month away from publication on September 1st, Don't Look zine still has room to showcase your poetry, short short fiction, photography, art, comic strip or other sundry creative endeavor that will fit on your page. Check out our submission guidelines and rules for more details. Also, feel free to browse our past issues available at our site to get an idea about our publication.



If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

In the summer time (queue up your favorite music here)
Wow. I have been remiss in my advertising. Shame on me.

Anyhow, a new issue of Don't Look minizine will be out in two days. Another amazing issue filled with stories, poetry and art - stuff I believe to be the finest found anywhere, but especially in a virally distributed mini literary magazine.

That isn't to say we wouldn't love to see your art, poetry, short short fiction or anything else you think would fit in our publication. Check out our submission guidelines and submission rules (how to submit). Please, don't be shy. You won't know until you try.

Plus, our photo contest is drawing to a close. Yeah, yeah, I know, it's been going on far too long, but hurry before it's too late!

Be sure to check out all our issues at our new archives website.

See you in two days!

Don't Look, Issue 4 now available
Zip-zip-zoom! Another two months fly by faster than something really fast that I would be clever for thinking up. Sorry, my mind's mush after putting together the latest issue. Can I brag a little?

I love this issue. We have some familiar faces and new ones.

Elizabeth Kate Switaj teaches English at ShengDa College in China's Henan Province. Her writing reflects her travels and the things her students have taught her using the language she teaches them, and it has appeared in numerous small press publications. Her chapbook, The Broken Sanctuary: Nature Poems, is published by Ypolita Press.

Lauren K. didn't say were she was from or where she was headed, but we were sure glad to have her stop by and contribute. Hopefully, she'll swing back some day and give us more.

Tobias McVey came to us via our own Linn Næss, but I sure hope he sticks around. He's one to watch, that's for sure.

Linn Næss created another stunning cover.

Wren Griffin returns with a new, surprising story. She saved the day, as she is inclined to do. Damn her heroic hide.

Una gifted us with a delightful poem. It couldn't have been any better if she put a bow upon it.

I am pleased to announce we have had one entry in the Don't Look Photo Contest. Once we receive a few more, we'll post the contestants. Entry has been extended until August 31, 2007. All photographs need to be submitted before then to be considered. The winner will be announced on our first anniversary, November 1, 2007.

Now, without further ado, allow me to present Issue 4 of Don't Look:

Don't Look, Issue 4 - US Version for 8.5x11 paper

Don't Look, Issue 4 - EU Version for A4 paper



Enjoy! As always, feedback, comments and insights welcome. Submissions too! You know where to find us.

An S.O.S. to the World
...or to this community.

As I'm laying out the new issue, I find space still available for art, photography, poetry, short short story and just about anything creative I can put on a page.

If you have anything that fits our guidelines, http://dsidecreations.com/dontlook/category/submission/guidelines/, please submit it and submit it soon.

Thanks!

This is no joke. Don't Look needs you! (geez, how corny can I get here?)
I waited to post this the day after April Fool’s, so no one would think it’s a joke.

A comic book shop in Norway stocks Don’t Look.

Don&quot;t Look Distribution Box


The Aliblabla allows a box of our minizine by the cash register, so customers can pick up a copy on the way out. The very nice owner keeps trying to pay us, but our agent, our poster child, Linn Næss, repeats over and over that Don’t Look is free. So, the next time you’re in Norway, be sure to stop by The Aliblabla. Since they’ve been so nice to us, we’ve placed our first “ad” on the front page.

The Aliblabla


With less than a month away, I need submissions for the next issue of Don’t Look. If you’ve been holding out, wondering if now is the time to submit, now is the time to submit. We still have room and look forward to seeing new, unique and exciting art and writing. Check out our submission guidelines and rules for details.

We also have a submission for our Photo Contest! Woo Hoo! After receiving these photos, I’ve decided to open the contest up. Send me anything with Don’t Look in the picture. Go, create, have fun! Run wild and free! I’ll stop here before I break into song, “Born Free.”

You’re welcome.

If you still haven’t had a chance to see the new issue, download and enjoy. We have two versions to match your needs: Letter US) and A4 EU).

Don't Look, Issue #3
Has it been two months already? Are we that far into the new year? Time flies when you're having fun - and we've had plenty of fun here at Don't Look. With this issue, we go international. That's right, for all those using A4 paper, we have the European version of the issue for you! Of course, we have the standard US version for those you like 8.5x11 paper.



Welcome to the beginning of viral distribution global domination! Print out copies and level them where ever you travel - a paper trail to find your way back home!

Folding instructions no longer come with the issue. You can download and print them separately here.

If you like what you read, do think about submitting some of your own work. We're always looking for fresh, new artist, writers, poets and photographers. Don't be shy.

Plus, we still don't have a winner for our photo contest. Keep in mind, folks, we don't know what it's like where you live. What you may find mundane, we would find exotic! Give us something unique, different and fun and we'll reward the best with something very special.

Enjoy! Feedback always welcome.

Don't Look sneak peek and submissions
Migration
Migration
artwork by Linn Naess

It's almost that time!  There's only one and a half weeks left before the March issue of Don't Look is released.  Issue #3 will feature cover art by the lovely Linn Naess (scarletautumn) as well as poetry, art, and comics.  If you haven't downloaded your copy of Issue #2 yet, it can still be found here.  Don't forget to print out a few extra copies and follow the folding instructions so they can be left for someone else to pick up and read.

With the release of Issue #3, though, comes another call for submissions.  Don't Look is looking for your art, photography, poetry, fiction, or nonfiction.  Poems should be 100 words or less.  Fiction and nonfiction should be 200 words or less.  If you've got something a little longer that you'd like us to consider, submit it with a short note telling us what it's about.  Artwork and photography should be able to fit in a 2.5" x 3.7" area and be in black and white.    Any genre is acceptable, but we're especially fond of the strange and unexpected.  Email your submissions to either jack.lee@dsidecreations.com or mlewys@dsidecreations.com. 

Now for the bribes.  Obviously we can't pay you - everything about the zine is free to the public.  However, anyone who sends in a submission that is accepted in the next month will receive a free Don't Look mini button and free stickers.  It's not much, but swag is always good.  Plus you get the added bonus of bragging rights!  We'll adore you and link to your personal site, pimp your work, and generally be all fangirlish.  It's what we do.  Again, any submissions that are accepted from now until March 20, 2007 will receive not only the usual love and adoration, but also a free button and free stickers!
