HOW TO CONTRIBUTE TO PLASMA'S SECOND PRINT ISSUE
The original definition for Bad Faith is the intent to deceive. A french philosophical term (coined by Simone de Beauvoir & Jean-Paul Sartre) to "describe the phenomenon in which human beings, under pressure from social forces, adopt false values and disown their innate freedom, hence acting inauthentically.” (Wikipedia definition)
However, Plasma’s version of Bad Faith will, as we always do, give a new meaning to this term. We want to look at the way we alter our linear, expected lives/selves in a way that deviates from “normal” (or our social selves), in a way that could be interpreted as “deceiving” but is more like challenging ourselves and existing outside of narratives of normalcy. Experiences with breaking norms and also being “bad” - not morally bad, but “bad” as in being selfish when necessary, being devious, breaking out of your comfortable mold. Who gets called selfish for paying attention to themselves, who is let off the hook?

Are you interested in having your work featured in Plasma Dolphin? Please keep in mind this issue is in print! This means we don't accept multimedia contributions like videos, music, gifs, etc. at this time! (This does not include playlists).
Send us an email at email@example.com and include the following:
Pitch to us ASAP. Final pitch due date for writing and visual work is June 30th. For visual work, process work/sketches are due July 7th so we have an idea of where the piece is heading. Writing will be edited once we’ve accepted your pitch. Written pieces go through an editing process so pieces of writing (unless they are exceptionally perfect) will not be accepted if sent on the due date with no pitch or progress work beforehand.
As you can read about in our About Us section, Plasma seeks to create a cohesive publication that has a consistent curated tone to it, while at the same time preserving and showcasing each contributors voice. Due to this, our process involves working closely with the editors on your piece. Please first send pitches before drafts! If your current pitch doesn't match with the current theme, you can re-pitch it for a later issue or talk to us about how you could re-work it to fit with the issue better. We're working towards making the best publication we possibly can and are excited to see what you come up with!
We get a lot of emails! Please be patient with us as we answer you all - it does not help to crowd our mailbox with messages asking if we've received your email, so please refrain unless it is urgent. <3
