We're Back!

Hey everyone! I know we've been incommunicado for quite some time now, but we've been busy with quite a few things! Instigatorzine founders, Narciso Espiritu Jr. and Keith Chiappone met today to discuss the future of the magazine. As always, we're thinking about ways we could make the magazine better and more accessible to our readers, writers and artists. We've come up with some ideas that we think are going to make the magazine better.

The first thing we did today was make a schedule for the magazine. Starting in July, the magazine will run strictly on a bi-monthly basis. Each issue will be 32 pages.

  • IZ11 - July 2011
  • IZ12 - September 2011
  • IZ13 - November 2011 

Starting in 2012, Instigatorzine will conform to a quarterly schedule.

  • IZ14 - January 2012
  • IZ15 - April 2012
  • IZ16 - July 2012
  • IZ17 - October 2012.

I know, these seems like so few issues to be released in one year, but we're still going to be very busy! Furthermore, instead of just 32 pages for each issue, we will be offering you 52 pages of literature and art by new authors and artists! Sounds pretty good to me.

Also, to make it even more fun, each issue is going to have its own contest. So check back for updates on what those contests will entail!

So you won't forget about us, we will also be holding readings and art shows in between each issue. The schedule for these is as follows:


  • January 7, 2012
  • March 3, 2012
  • April 7, 2012
  • June 2, 2012
  • July 7, 2012
  • September 1, 2012
  • October 6, 2012
  • December 1, 2010

Art Shows:

  • January 8-14, 2012
  • April 8-14, 2012
  • July 8-14, 2012
  • October 7-13, 2012

You're probably thinking, "Well that's next year. What abou this year? It's only May!" Well, yes, it is only May and that means that we've still got a lot of time to organize some readings for you for the remainder of this year! Look for one in August.

If anybody knows of venues in New Jersey that offer space for authors and artists, let us know!
