Special Issues: Found Poetry
Three times a year (February, June, and October), when our sister pub, Sonic Boom, is taking submissions, we are going to mix things up here at Human/Kind and do a special issue featuring found poetry. Each issue will have a different theme or prompt.

For October: ATCs
For the October Special Issue, we want to switch things up a bit and give you more creative freedom to express yourselves! Presenting the ‘Artist Trading Cards Gallery Show’!
An Artist Trading Card or ATC measures 2.5 x 3.5 in. and are miniature works of art that are created and then, yes, you guessed it right, traded with other artist friends. It’s a fun way to interpret these mini works that can showcase a variety of styles. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Submit no more than 5 ATCs as high-resolution .JPGs for review.
Forms may include:
