Looks like there's a new arts rag in town.
Restless is an East Valley arts anthology (we nabbed ours at POOL, in Mesa, and have been told you can also grab a copy at Evermore Nevermore) that just released its first issue. Inside you can expect to find creative writing, illustration, photography and poetry from creatives all over "with a strong emphasis on those from the cities and communities of the East Valley."
It was started by Amber Brosovich, David Crummey and Owen Stupka, who say Issue One was much postponed due to Glee.
They're currently looking for artists and writers for future issues. (For issue two, they're looking specifically for illustrations and fiction in the retro-futurism genre.)
Submissions must be sent by Sept. 24 to email@example.com.
