We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

a zine about dealing with car culture and alternatives to it that include more methods than just biking

Still looking for submissions, I've only gotten one so far and it's past the deadline.

I am planning on creating a zine tentatively titled: "walking through a car-driven world"

The premise of it is an attempt on my part to reflect on my impending car-less-ness in a state that does not have a reputation of good public transportation (all we have are buses, that are not known for their reliability, in RI), and gain inspiration from other people who go car-less in similar situations. 

There are several kinds of stories you can write:

The who, what, why, and hows of your choice (or lack of choice) to being car-less: you can focus on just a why or just a how, or do all of them, it's up to you.

Car-less tricks and tips

Especially I want to hear from people that do not have a good public transportation system in their state and how they supplement it (biking, walking, etc)

Biking safety/repair resources/tips

Walking/pedestrian topics (especially on walking long distances)

Finding work without a car, how do you approach the question in trying to find a new job 

The deadline was  June 14, around the time I no longer had a car and  need to rely on biking, walking, and the crappy bus. I have more experience now but am still nervous about doing certain things. Please get a submission in ASAP so I can move forward with this and so that people who submit can see the fruits of their efforts eventually.

Send any writings, pictures, responses or questions to me...at useyourwordszines (at) gmail [dot]com
