How to Submit to The Shantyquarian

We're merging online social networking with old-fashioned letterpress printing. Tag your tweets with #shantyQ, and we'll set your words in wood and metal type and print them on an antique press live at Northern Spark. You can also submit using our online form.

Send us your submissions:
                           OR
We encourage you to send us multiple submissions. Submit early, submit often! 

For the Northern Spark edition, we will be generating a collaborative text compiled form your responses to prompts based on surrealist writing games. Follow @shantyquarian on Twitter, or check out our What to Submit to The Shantyquarian page.

We'll be printing the Northern Spark edition of The Shantyquarian from sunset (8:59 PM) on Saturday, June 9th through sunrise (5:26 AM) on Sunday, June 10th.
