We're putting together a new Canadian arts magazine called HIVE, which will include articles and reviews on new media projects. We are looking for new media/net writers and artists who have some Canadian association, are writing about Canadian artists or have something to do with Canadian/North American interests.

artists:
contact editor@hivezine.com with your name, a bit of relevant background info/bio (ie. Canadian association/interest), and any relevant URLs.

writers:
please contact editor@hivezine.com to propose a writing idea for articles, essays, reviews or columns. Proposals shouldn't be more than a paragraph or two, and the writing style can be relaxed yet still well informed.
