a place for zinesters - writers and readers
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.
