GABA zine

GABA is a zine project that is a product of my own frustrations at the lack of honest portrayals of people with mental illnesses in popular media.  The truth is that living with mental illness can be terrifying, it can be isolating, it can be wonderful, and it can be beautiful. GABA seeks to give a voice to people affected by mental illness and honest insight into what it’s like for people who are not affected by mental illness.

 Issue one of GABA will be focused on Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). All submissions short stories, art, comics, poems, song etc about your experiences living with OCD (or living with someone who has OCD) that offer an honest look into life with OCD are welcome!

Please send all submissions to gabazinesubmissions@gmail.com

Thank you!

I write/edit a collaborative 1/4 size zine called refrigerator dedicated to art featuring poetry, especially found poetry, but really anything kind of surreal and whimsical.  Email me at spacecadet_42(at)yaho(dot)com for more info

Dairy River is accepting submissions for Volume 11!  I posted this in the call for submissions group a couple weeks ago, but I figured I'd cross-post it here for good measure.  Drop us a line (dairyriver [at] gmail.com) -- we'd love to hear from / collaborate with you!  Keep the following in mind:

(1) we especially like submissions relating to the built environment, music history, and critical theory;
(2) submissions are accepted on a rolling basis;
(3) we post accepted submissions online immediately -- sometimes even sooner; 
(4) we eventually compile all accepted submissions into a print zine;
(5) we regularly consult with an entity known as "Silver Univnron" before making big decisions.



are you trading, or selling your zines? it sounds great!

Submissions wanted for Sonorus: feminist perspectives on Harry Potter zine!

sonorus flyer

Sonorus is a new zine, created by three UK-based Harry Potter fans and feminists.

The aim of this zine is to see what feminists think of the Harry Potter series (including the books, the films, the cultural phenomenon and the fandom), for Harry Potter fans to look at the series in another way, and to put the spotlight on the numerous female characters in the world J.K. Rowling has created.

Details, including writing prompts, can be found at http://sonoruszine.wordpress.com

NB: deadline has been extended to 01 SEPTEMBER 2013.

Not sure you are correct when you state you own the rights to submitted work. Technically, you are asking for the artists permission to use their works, but the creator owns the rights to their work.

Hi b stein,
We don't presume to own anyone's work :) It actually says "you retain all rights to your work." We want artists to keep all rights to everything they submit.
Thanks!
Jackie
