Hi everyone,

The call for proposals for Libre Graphics Magazine issue 1.1 is below.
Please feel free to cross-post to any related lists blogs, or your
medium of choice.

Libre Graphics Magazine is seeking submissions for its first numbered
issue, which loosely follows the theme First Encounters/Taking Flight.
Submissions can range from the written, to the visual, to the
interactive. If it can be flattened and printed, it could appear in
our print edition. If it moves or requires user input to be seen
properly, it might just be a good fit for our web edition. Proposals
for articles or works (or even already completed works), may be
submitted until October 3, 11:59 Eastern time. Proposals for articles
should be no more than 100 words, although the articles themselves may
be up to 1000 words. Proposals and work may be sent to

First times are seen as momentous events in our lives. The first time
away from home, first job, first kiss, all are seen as seminal events,
meant to be packed up and remembered, fondly or not. The first,
narratively, carries a heavier weight in our memories than so many
subsequent events. After the first time, you start getting used to it,
you become proficient, the magic and mystery start to wear off.

This issue, we're talking about firsts. We're talking about first
experiences, first efforts, first anythings, about the liberation of
letting go and trying something new, and the terror that sometimes
comes with it. Firsts are about taking flight, about leaving behind
the things you know and embracing something else.

That's where our second theme, Taking Flight, comes in. Taking flight,
leaving behind, in a physical and a metaphorical sense, carries with
it that sense of liberation and trepidation, that change of
perspective. Lifting off of our metaphorical ground and looking down
from above packs the power to change our perspective, to let us a
little bit out of ourselves. In the same way that seeing your own city
from above can completely change your conception of it, seeing your
own possibility and creative process from above has the power to make
you stop and think again about the elements of process, style or
workflow that you take for granted.

Taken together, the ideas of First Encounters and Taking Flight are
all about discovering the new, the momentous, the big and the
unexpected that you never even thought you possessed. These things, in
your own head, in your own possibility, unlocked if only you give them
a chance and break from the norm. That's why, this month, we're
talking about firsts and flights, about the magic, the mystery, the
revelation of doing something new and discovering what you never even
suspected you possessed.
