Working on making some of my own slip-on covers for TGCF and MDZS. I still need to check the placement of titles and things, but here's my first one so far
MXTX Food Zine: Round Two!
It’s December again, which means that the interest check for the second round of the MXTX Food Zine is now live! Please fill it out by December 7 if you intend to join, so we can get an idea of how many people will be participating this year.
Some specs for newcomers: This zine will be free, SFW, and 100% digital, with one dish/recipe per participant, or group of participants if you want to collaborate on a recipe. After creator sign-ups, creators can reserve their chosen recipes on a first-come first-serve basis.
For more information, check out the FAQ below. You can read the 2022 release of the MXTX Food Zine here.
1. What’s a food zine?
Entries to the zine will consist of recipes paired with one or more pieces of fanwork: for example, you can contribute a recipe and accompanying fic or fanart that involves the recipe or dish in some way. Artists can contribute illustrated recipe cards instead of traditional fanart.
Contributors can also collaborate to create an entry: the zine won’t feature multiple versions of the same recipe, so there’ll be an option to work together with other creators on a single zine entry. Please note that dishes featured in the 2022 edition cannot appear again in the 2023 release.
2. Who can join? What’s the application process?
There is no application process! This is not a charity zine, so it will be 100% digital and free for downloading after it’s completed. Anyone in the MXTX fandoms is welcome to sign up.
3. What kind of recipes are allowed?
Any and all recipes are allowed. They don’t need to be traditional Chinese recipes or recipes related to the dishes mentioned in MXTX’s novels.
4. When will the zine be released?
Sometime between August and December of 2023.
5. What are the rules about content?
The only hard and fast rule is that entries must be SFW and fall safely within a T rating according to AO3 standards. Other than that, it’s up to you: you can include your favorite rarepairs, draw crossover art, write all kinds of AUs, etc.
6. When do sign-ups open?
Sign-ups will open on December 19 and remain open until December 26, which is when recipe sign-ups will open for creators. If necessary, I might run a second round of zine sign-ups extending into January.
7. Do I have to fill out the interest check to join the zine?
No, but please fill it out anyway if you can. <3
