GAMBA Zine is a provocative literary magazine created to inspire passion and thoughtfulness outside the politics of mainstream publication. We are looking for writers and visual artists to submit work that pushes the limits of their craft and adds to an exhibition of progressive ideas from all over the world. Every issue is designed around a specific theme so artists will create new work or identify past work directly connected to that theme. Please see details below:

The theme for Issue #6 is: Control

We are looking for writers and artists willing to explore ideas of order, chaos, autonomy, power, predestination and ultimately control. 

Question to ruminate on:

  • How are power and control related?
  • How is autonomy related to giving up control?
  • Is power given or taken?
  • How are control and power exerted and expressed?

Please see our website - - to familiarize yourself with previous issues and who we are in general. 

Submission Requirements:

  • Send by March 25, 2016
  • Writers: No more than two single spaced, typed pages (1500 words)
  • Visual artists: send 3-10 images of your work with an explanation of how it relates to the theme.
