Awesome writing about beards wanted; also, Diaspora Dialogues seeks new works by young writers

BEARDS: the zine (Canada) is a one-off print magazine about beards. Seeking fiction and nonfiction about “good beards, bad beards, beards made of facial hair, beards made of lies.” No poetry. Must contain the word “beard” at least once in the prose. “Must be awesome.” Payment: contributor copy. Prefers: curse words, bait and switches, head scratchers, things under 100 words, dark dark stories, more.
Deadline: December 31, 2013

Hello, Brian.
At Diaspora Dialogues were always looking for new works by young writers to publish on our webzine Shorthand.
If you would be so kind as to distribute this submissions call, it'd be much appreciated! Have an excellent day,

Diaspora Dialogues Shorthand Submissions Call - ongoing deadline!
Folks refer to you as “youth.” You’re somewhere in the age range of 16-25, love to express yourself through writing, and have a poem, short story, play, excerpt from a piece of creative non-fiction or novel, or a comic (or all of the above!) to your name.

Now what?

New Voices, a special section of Diaspora Dialogues’ monthly webzine Shorthand, is ready to receive and present the writings of Toronto’s next generation of richly diverse young writers.
