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, firstname.lastname@example.org (mailto:email@example.com)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org !! 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/

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.
Attention writers and artists! This is an open call for submissions for our new project THIS HEART IS HOMEBOUND, a compilation zine on toxic beginnings, non-traditional upbringings, and redefining family.
The concept for this project is born out of a need expressed by ourselves as well as others in our community, in which we struggle to reconcile the concept of family presented in popular culture with our own "imperfect," non-traditional, or even abusive familial experiences. Moving forward as adults, we also grapple with our own radical notions of what family should be and how to create the support systems that we and our community need. We would like THIS HEART IS HOMEBOUND to be a diverse resource for those of us who are looking for answers to these questions.
All those who submit to THIS HEART IS HOMEBOUND will receive a free copy of the finished zine!
TOPICS FOR SUBMISSION INCLUDE:
- toxic families (low contact versus no contact, living through abuse, becoming an adult too young, healing relationships, etc.)
- non-traditional upbringings (foster care/adoption experiences, group homes, not being raised by nuclear family, death/incarceration/institutionalization of intimate family members, growing up in cultures/traditions/religions not recognized by the mainstream, etc.)
- redefining family (navigating chosen family, building positive support systems, de-stigmatizing non-mainstream family structures, etc.)
- coping with all of the above
Submissions may include but are not limited to: personal essays, poetry, visual art, comics, non-fiction, etc.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS MIDNIGHT ON OCTOBER 15th.
EMAIL ALL SUBMISSIONS TO: email@example.com
For more info, check out our Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1393904284182053/

ZINE SUBMISSIONS TO SELL IN INDEPENDENT RECORD STORE
I haven't posted on here in a while but a lot of cool zine-wise/music-wise stuff has been going on in my life. I've done a few punk rock flea markets recently and just picked up a job at my hometown's record store Siren Records in Doylestown, PA- a train ride away from Philly.
In the past they've had a section for zines on consignment but it has since dwindled and I'd like to renew our showcase for DIY and zines by sending out this announcement and redesigning our set up for zine displays in the shop.
We're interested in all types of zines- especially, music-related, political, cooking, poetry, art etc. I'll be selling my zine series Staircase Wit there too! If you'd be interested in the spirit of DIY & supporting independent record stores (while promoting yer own stuff!) contact me @ email@example.com. Please include what's your zine about and pictures of the pages inside would be helpful too!
From there on, I'll give you more info & the next steps in this process.
For the love of DIY-
