Zine Submissions

Submission Form!

The Channels would like to encourage our community to share their ideas and perspectives regarding this question: 

How do you envision our environmental future?


The influx of news about climate change can be seen as intensely overwhelming. Many who consume media are constantly told that our planet is in crisis, while we simultaneously are told that there is nothing we can do to save it. The sense of impending doom creeps closer and closer, and paralysis sets in.

For others, the future is brighter. Community organizing, new adaptations and technology, and  changes rippling throughout society help us to create a better tomorrow. 

The Channels wants to know what YOU think.

What are we creating?

We are creating a zine as a reflection of this central topic through your submitted writing, poetry, photography, drawings, and other multimedia both digitally and in print in mid-November. 

Be creative! Our zine will be a platform for showcasing your authentic outlooks and interpretations of our environmental future.

We will be accepting submissions until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 31.
