UPPERCASE readers are a talented and generous bunch. Here are some ways that you can get involved in the magazine and our community.

Call for Submissions: Issue #23

Calligraphy

The fall issue of UPPERCASE magazine will have a special focus on the art of calligraphy. We'd love to see your work and share it with our readers!

The submissions for "Calligraphy Auditions" are in two parts. Your digital submission and a mailed-in example of your work. The best submissions will be featured in the print edition of the magazine as well as on our blog.

Mail in a 5 x 7 example on card stock (either in an envelope or sent as a postcard) showing off your calligraphic skills by writing about why you love calligraphy or demonstrating what makes hand-lettered messages so appealing. The card should be exclusively calligraphic.
