About Us

Deadbeat Poets Society is an online community and Zine publisher based out of Arizona, as well as a trademarked organization run by Callan Fuqua. They are an Arizona native, neuroqueer performer and writer who began DBPS in July of 2021. We’re always open to feedback so don’t ever be afraid to reach out if you’d like to collaborate with us or offer suggestions. 

The Deadbeat Poets Zine is published twice a month based on the submissions that we receive from creators of all walks of life. For the zine itself, we produce a compilation zine and a creator zine. You can view specifics in our "Types of Zines" section on our website. We accept writing & art - wordcount within 2k or 5 pieces of art. We do not require you to be an Arizona resident to submit to us.


Check our Events and Social Media for updates or special opportunities. On an ongoing basis, we also host a monthly poetry/spoken word open mic at Zombi World Market & Occult in Northern Phoenix. There is no entry and performers are free to either sign up early on our website OR sign up when they come to the shop.

When using or submitting our website, you are required to adhere to our Zero Tolerance policy. This means no material deemed racist, homophobic, sexist, explicit violence, animal abuse or the like will be accepted nor will harassment be tolerated. We do have a clear FAQ section which explains this mandate. 


Our mission is to be an inclusive space for everyone so we can "grow together." Understanding that what makes us unique is what keeps us together means that we are strong advocates for change. 

We are an equal opportunity Zine and event coordinator. Deadbeat Poets is always open to reading and evaluating work that is submitted to our website. Your voice matters. We want to be the stepping stone along the way through your creative journey.

“You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.”

Types of Zines

The DBPS Zine is a monthly, themed compilation of submissions that we receive. The zine itself is usually 6-8 pages - sometimes longer. All of these zines are themed, therefore may have different titles when it is published.

The Creator Zine is based on individuals. If you select this option in the form we provide, we offer the following on being selected: 

  • You pick the theme 

  • You pick the work used (writing and/or art) 

  • We collaborate on the imagery/how the zine will look

  • We send it to production to be made into a zine

We offer pricing for our zines depending on the size between $3-$6 once they are published. For example, our zine Isn’t It Grand? focuses on insecurity and regret.

If you are interested in submitting your work, please fill out the form above.
