Fortissimo is a short 'zine showcasing creative experiments and discussion about them.
The creative process itself and its discarded products can be just as, and even sometimes more interesting than the final creation. I wanted to explore, expose and celebrate this.
Fortissimo will be released Bimonthly, and at present is digital-only. If you are interested in a physical version, please let me know!
Submissions for Issue 2 are open until the 10th of July. Please see the block below for info on submitting.
Issue 1 - June 2018
- A short prose piece about the horrors of free-to-play mechanics
- Attempts at painting
- A Ladybird
- An exploration of what grabs me about procedural generation
- A poem from New Jersey poet, Ink, "upon delivery"
- Free ideas!
If you are interested in showcasing your personal experiments or discussing your experimental processes, [drop me a line](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?Subject="Fortissimo Submission")! Happy to take text, photos, images, whatever form your experiment takes.
Please send me a brief pitch before working your socks off! It only needs to be a line or two about what you are working on and the form it will take.
Accepted submissions will be paid at a rate of US$10 per A5 page filled, although this is open to negotiation.
