I make a comic zine called Dreams of Donuts, which is pretty much all about me and my life and punk stuff too. I'm NOT looking for submissions for that, but I AM interested in submitting to another zine. The reason I'm posting here, though, is because I have had a hard time finding a zine to submit to. I would ideally like to submit to a zine that covers topics similar to my own zine: feelings, veganism, collective living, love interests, punk, house shows, mixtapes, etc. I'm also only looking for a print zine to contribute to, not one that is just or part an "ezine".
If you've got something that sounds good for me, please email me at email@example.com

Hey you guys,
I decided to make my first zine ever. It's going to be called Badewannenoptik which is German and means bath tub optic or bath tub perspective. I want to fill it with drawings from different people which show their bodies taking a bath from their perspektive.
When you look down at your body, what you see isn’t always the most flattering view on it. That’s ok! Because I think taking this look at yourself is very sexy! Your body can look very differently from every perspektive. But your perspektive on your body is the one that really matters. It’s this realistic and maybe also curious exploration of the own body that I find so interesting!
So I'm looking for people who'd like to submit their drawing for Badewannenoptik-Zine. You don’t have to be an artist. You can think of yourself as an terrible drawer. There is no „technical quality“ expected from your drawings because I think these are subjective categories anyway. Not only the different bodies are interesting to me, but also or even more the different views on them.
You can censor certain genitals by hiding them in a bubble bath, if you like to.
[The original drawing above is not censored of course and the drawings in the zine also won't be censored but I think you aren't allowed to show nudity in ning-networks so ...]
The drawings are going to be published anonymously in the zine (unless you want it otherwise).
You can send your drawings to zersaugt[at]gmx[dot]de
or you can submit to the badewannenoptik-tumblr: http://badewannenoptik.tumblr.com/
Hey there. First time zine writer, and essentially looking for submissions! HELP PLEASE.
Essentially I'm doing a zine about crushes at work after totally falling for this girl at my new job I started a month ago. She's the prettiest girl I've ever seen and so far has shown to be quite witty, but 99% of the time I'm around her I often struggle to put together a coherent sentence that isn't total dogshit. Further down the line I totally expect to make an ass of myself and wind up in embarassing/funny/depressing situations. The first thing she said to me was 'I'd shake your hand if mine weren't covered in toffee', so that's certainly a start
So, with my ongoing saga I've decided to try put a zine together of other peoples experiences with crushes in the workplace, hence asking for submissions! It can be anything; happy, sad, heartbreaking, heartwarming, funny, dumb, whatever. You can even do it as a comic if you'd like. Also if goes without saying that if you want to do it anonymously that's fine.
