More Bodies, More Anger is a free zine that's composed of submissions from independent writers and artists.

Right now, this is experimental in nature and we're looking for submissions of poetry, comics, photographs, essays, short stories, drawings, or whatever.

We compile the submissions in a free zine, which can be downloaded online.   Print it out, leave a few somewhere, and share it with friends.

--

Submit something by June 10th to see it published in the first issue of More Bodies, More Anger, available June 30th, 2014.

Hello! My zine THE COLLAR TONES is looking for submissions for issue #6: Daydreaming. I'm looking for anyone who would be willing to do anything at all that pertains to the theme. This could mean any type of writing, photo sets, stories, or any art in general. Please email/message me if this topic interests you at all. I would love for more zinesters to contribute to my zine because it has been a majorly independent venture so far. Please contact me soon as the issue will be released in late May. Thanks! :)

Recently, I found a tiny mini-comic hidden in the stacks at the IPRC, simply titled "What Happened to the Zine Library?"
It was the story of a regular day at the IPRC when Greig, our founding zine librarian, had shelfread and catalogued quite a few zines, but right before he closed up at 10PM, he decided to shelve one more zine. Leaning up to the highest shelf, the 8-foot-tall bookcase gave way, and all of the zines came tumbling down around him.
The next page's panel was Greig, fists thrown in the air, eyes towards the heavens, exasperatedly saying "ZINES! I give you so much of my time and money, and this is how you repay me?!"
I have never felt so much like a single panel of a mini-comic explained my life so well. If hashtags had existed when Greig made that zine, it undoubtedly would have been #zinelibrarianproblems
So I'm making a comp zine! I'm looking for anyone who identifies as a zine librarian or ex-zine librarian, to submit short pieces of topical art, stories, mixtape track listings, recipes or even just pages stained with the tears of metadata to my comp zine "Zine Librarian Problems". Please make submissions half-sized friendly. Does not need to be new work if you've made something that fits in with the zine before. 
Deadline is June 20th. You can submit by USPS to:
Lillian Karabaic
IPRC
1001 SE Division St, Ste 2
Portland, OR 97202
or by internet mail to: librarian(at)iprc(dot)org
I hope to see your brilliant commiserations! 
Lillian
IPRC Zine Librarian
Full disclosure: I'm going to be giving some of these as a reward for my "Send the IPRC Zine Librarian to the Zine Librarian Unconference" kickstarter. You'll get 2 copies for yourself if you submit & retain full rights to your work.
Currently accepting submissions for TAPEWÜRM issue 2.
If you would like to submit music for review, art, or writing, please let me know.

Especially if you would like to join the writing team and write an ongoing feature or contribute reviews for future issues.

Submission deadline for issue 2 is July 30th

QUEST FOR THE NEW WRITER

NEW POP LIT, an upcoming new lit web site and print journal, is searching for talented DIY writers. We need fun, exciting or emotional short fiction, clearly written and well paced. Not craft so much as energy and the immediacy of experience. We seek stories and writers with verve and personality. The goal: to represent (as zines represent) an alternative to the same-old same-old.

I'm a former zinester and activist. I've always believed that culture is created from the ground up, not imposed by mandarins from on high. It's why I'm looking here for fresh styles and new viewpoints.

Send your stories or ideas for stories to Pop Lit, newpoplit@gmail.com (mailto:newpoplit@gmail.com)

Thanks!

Hello!

Looking for people to submit to a new zine called Undelivered. It will feature messages to those we have lost. This can be a letter to someone (human or animal) who has passed, one to someone you no longer talk to, a letter to a lost shoe, a letter to that person in that one math class who you used to talk to, but lost touch as soon as the class ended, etc. It can even be a letter to someone you don't even know. 

I just find that just getting those feelings and thoughts out there into the universe helps me deal.  So I thought others might feel the same way.

Please note that just because this is about people/animals/things we've lost doesn't mean it has to be sad. 

If you are interested, send me a message. If you submit something you will receive a copy of the final product. I cannot offer any kind of payment because if I end up selling any it will just be for the cost of printing. Chances are I will just give most of them away. 

Entries can be letters, drawings, poems, photos, anything you wish. There is no limit. I have not decided on what size it will be yet, so there are no restrictions there. That will all be determined by what sort of entries are received. 

If you have any questions, or wish to submit something please send me a message/comment/pigeon/whatever.

Hello everyone!! I'm looking for contributors for my fall 2014 zine THE COLLAR TONES with the "Past Tense" issue. I want people to scan/collage old writing/photos/items from the past and then reflect on them. For more details, please message me or email me at thecollartoneszine@gmail.com !! Below are some examples of what I'm talking about.

Hello.  I had the pleasure of attending the Portland Zine Symposium on Saturday, July 12th, 2014.  I gave out flyers for our below project that seeks to license characters from zine writers.

These are the requirements:

#1.  We are looking FOR LGBTQIA or female zine or chapbook writers of all race and class backgrounds only.  This is for several reasons including that over 70% of our writing team is currently male (see our below video) and we seek diversity.
#2.  You must have a past or current zine that has at least two volunes.  We are not interested in zines that are "one off" or single issues.
#3.  We are only interested in fictional characters.  Non-fictional characters cause legal complications.
#4.  You will have to send us a scanned copy or PDF copy of your zine so we can read it.  We recommend that you upload it to dropbox and send a link to us via our contact form found below.

  If anyone is interested please contact us

by using our contact page.  Include a phone number or we will not contact you/

Thanks everyone!

Love, peace,

LoveSetFree

Thank you.

Dear Anonymous 3 is on its way and I’m looking for letters!

These letters can be confessionals, but they can also be whatever you like them to be. Write to your life, write to your cat, write to your past or your future… Dear Anonymous is about writing the letters of the things you can’t say for whatever reason.

Basically, you’re right in the 1 – 500 words range, but shorter is better. BUT, this zine is about expression, and I don’t want to force anyone to clamp down on their passion just for me. I’m flexible.

Send letters to theauthor at inkyblots.com If I don’t respond to you within a few days, comment here.

All contributors will receive a copy.
