Calling all writers, artists, poets, thinkers, activists…

Oxford Climate Society and InTandem Publications (part of the Tandem Collective) are collaborating to produce the third RISE zine, celebrating creativity in the face of climate change. This issue’s theme will be Not Back to Normal, exploring the environmental impact and opportunities of the Covid-19 crisis.

We want your personal responses – in the form of art, poetry, short stories, music…whatever you feel!

As well as a digital edition, we also hope to print physical copies to order (lockdown dependent); although bear in mind these will be printed in black and white. Stay tuned for more details!

Email your submissions to:

rise.ocs@gmail.com …sometime before midnight on the 30th of June.

And drop us a line if you have any questions. We can’t wait to see what you create.

Lots of love, the RISE team x


Welcome to InTandem Publications.

InTandem started life in 2015 as a quarterly publication with each edition dealing with specific environmental or social justice issues and accepting entries in any medium. We are currently collaborating with the Oxford Climate Society on the annual zine RISE and are looking for other writers to join our writers’ collective. 

InTandem Publications is part of the Tandem Collective. The Collective facilitates collaborative projects grown out of local communities that celebrate culture, foster cooperation and inspire change. We are currently working on InTandem, Ethno England and Tandem Festival. Tandem Collective is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company.

All previous editions of InTandem and RISE are available to read and/or buy online.
