We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I'm looking for submissions for a one-off zine called I'm Not Like Other Girls.

What I want women and girls to do is to complete the sentence,
"I'm not like other girls because..."

I will make a zine of the responses.

The sentence will appear randomly placed, with all credits at the end, so your sentence and your credit aren't linked. This may help you to be more open, and the zine will flow much better too.

They may be categorised by theme, but that will depend on the submissions.

If you want to contribute, email me at incurable.hippie@googlemail.com

1) Put 'I'm not like other girls' in the subject line.
2) Email me your sentence (I'm not like other girls because...)
3) Tell me if you want to be anonymous.
4) If you want to be credited, tell me how (name / pseudonym, name of zine, etc)
5) If you want to receive a contributors' copy when it's ready, tell me your address too.

I can't guarantee your words will be put in the zine, but it's very likely. I only want submissions from women and girls.

Thanks!

I like this idea. I am thinking it could turn out to be a pretty uplifting project.
Sounds interesting! I may just make the time to contribute!
Really glad you both like the idea! I'd love it if you'd contribute :)
Hi Sarah
Yes, it's as easy as that!

Not to get all philosophical, but what definition or standard of "girl" are we going by here?
Is it as easy as me saying something like, "I'm not like other girls because I watch Deadwood and not Sex and the City"?
Sounds like an interesting project.
I would love to read the final product!
Thank you! I'm really excited about it :)

What is your deadline? I want to contribute, but I am moving to Portland tomorrow morning and may not be able to get anything to you in the next couple of days. However, I am about to go on my morning walk and will probably be preoccupied with coming up with my submission.

I absolutely want to read this zine when it's done!
I haven't set a strict deadline because I'm really not sure how many / at what speed submissions will come in, but certainly another week or two, so don't panic that you can't get it done in the next couple of days :)
