The submission deadline for the Tucson Weekly's Obama Issue is almost here! All submissions need to be in on or before noon on Jan. 7—that's next Wednesday.
To recap what the Obama Issue is all about: In our Jan. 15-21 issue, we're opening our pages to you, our splendid readers, to express yourselves regarding the departure of George W. Bush and the inauguration of Barack Obama. That expression can take pretty much any form: writings, poetry, visual arts—it's up to you.
While we're still eagerly seeking writing submissions, we want to put out a special call to all of you visual artists out there: As of now, we've received only a few drawings/paintings/illustrations.
Again, that deadline is noon on Wednesday, Jan. 7. Send questions and/or submissions—with contact information for verification purposes—to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
