a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I'm starting work on a zine about being vegetarian/vegan and I'm looking for people to be interviewed or just answer a few questions.
I know there's already a lot of veg literature out there but much of it is strongly political or extreme enough that the casual meat-eater won't even pick it up. I'm hoping for this to be more of a gentler entry-guide and something I can promote to the kids and teens at my craft fairs and workshops. Basically just asking regular people who don't eat meat why they don't and what they do eat and things like that. Questions that the regular person might have.
I know when my friend came to visit a few years ago before I turned veg again my dad genuinely didn't know what she ate. To him a meal was always potatoes or corn or a bun or whatever on the side of chicken or pork. Without the meat there he just didn't know what went on the plate. It's that kind of mindset that I'm looking to target and open a discussion with rather than handing people on the street pamphlets of pigs being slaughtered and expecting that to suddenly make them change.
If you're cool with participating post your e-mail here or drop me a line at email@example.com and I'll get back to you once I decide on my initial outline.
