Since 2017, WHUS has been publishing a magazine full of student artwork and writing. Our goal is to highlight hidden talent and unique perspectives at UConn while allowing members to find additional means of expression outside of radio.
The Spring 2021 edition will be a unique multimedia digital magazine that cannot be achieved by print. We want to embrace the virtual world we are living in by exploring new and revolutionary ways to display and consume media. Each page of the Spring 2021 Zine will have an interactive aspect, such as a video or audio clip embedded onto a digital art or writing piece. We are searching for students and community members with a creative spirit to submit content such as short films, music videos, original songs, song covers, spoken word pieces, digital art, animations, and more to be featured in the Spring Zine.
Past WHUS Zines include the Fall 2018 edition titled “Speak on That,” which includes a collection of writing, collages, and artwork centered around social and political commentary, and the Fall 2017 edition which is more of a broad display of the various artistic styles seen in students at UConn. The most recent issue from Fall 2020 titled “Exposure Therapy,” challenged its contributors to create art and writing pieces that put them outside of their comfort zone. It will be released both digitally and in print coming soon.
If you are interested in creating work for the Spring 2021 Virtual Zine, please reach out to Rita at firstname.lastname@example.org . Zine meetings are held Wednesdays at 6:00PM over Google Meet.
We are currently accepting submissions up until March 24, 2021. Prior to submitting anything, we encourage you to reach out to the contacts above and please review these linked guidelines. We can’t wait to see what you create!
