looking for submissions for the queer feminist compilation zine, hoax, for its 6th issue: feminisms & communication!

potential ideas for material include, but are not limited to:

  • how  we utilize the various creative mediums to express ourselves: ie  art/music/playwriting/dance/zines etc.
  • language: terminology / identifications / labels / who is allowed to use certain terms / reclamation
  • media: various types / their historical & cultural relevancy / effectiveness for social change / the decline of print media / online activism & social justice movements
  • visibility: how we choose to communicate our identities (verbally and non verbally) / how different communication styles “out” us / secrecy / how we talk & to whom / where do you draw the line in sharing certain information (online, at yr job etc.)
  • non-verbal communication: how we “read” and then judge others / body politics & gendered expressions (“passing” and “body work”)
  • consent: expressed vs. body language / legacy of shitty health class information / talking about queer and/or non-normative sex
  • silence: when not to speak / boundaries
  • relationships: communicating different with various friends, partners, family members, strangers etc.
  • emotion: how it gets intertwined with communication & makes it more or less effective / intensity & whether it will hinder someone’s account as being believable (“too angry” “hysterical”) 
  • disagreements: how do and should we communicate our ideas to those who disagree with us? / “tone arguments” / should a person with a marginalized identity have to “play nice” when talking to somebody who has privilege over them? / “call outs” & accountability processes / expressing hate & anger
  • the self: self-care / where the self ends & community begins / expressing yr needs / creating & sustaining personal boundaries
  • accessibility: geographic accessibility / accessibility to language / pretension / the “academic industrial complex” 
  • networking: action / teamwork / friendships
  • space: physical / emotional 
  • legislation: policy / community organizing / the importance of local action

we also totally need lots of artwork (photos, collages, illustrations, drawings, paintings, comics, etc.)! particularly for background designs and things that compliment the written material.

please aim to submit yr amazing material to hoaxzine@gmail.com by october 1st, 2011. if you are interested, feel free to e-mail us yr ideas for topics & artwork!  while we are not totally inflexible with the submission date, we are also not in a position where we can continually push it back like we have with previous issues. the sooner you send us yr work, the better! people of all genders are welcome to submit!

also, we are still distributing back issues of hoax #2 (although we are almost out of our last print!) hoax #3hoax #4 hoax #5. please email us if you would like to obtain any of these issues!

it’s been nearly two and a half years since we first began working on hoax. neither of us can believe how much this project has expanded since then! thank you so much to every contributor, reader, & supporter of this zine!

we are looking forward to seeing yr work!

in solidarity,
sari & rachel

I'm pulling together a collective of creative work by women around the world into a series of zines called Dainty As Fuck. I am asking you all very politely to submit creative material of any kind, be it poetry, short story (fiction or non-fiction), photography, drawings, or whatever else tickles your fancy. The deadline for all material will be the 1st of December 2011, so you have plenty of time to get your stuff to me. The aim is to have the first of the zines published by the 1st of January 2012, and will be available at Sticky in Melbourne CBD. If you do not live in the Melbourne area or wish to have an electronic copy sent to you, don't hestitate to email me.

Please email your submissions and/or any questions to fkyeahactivism@yahoo.com by the 1st of December 2011. I would greatly appreciate your input :)

**Make sure you type "zine" or "dainty as fuck" or something along those lines in the subject line of your email or it will be deleted.**

Please invite your FEMALE friends. Submissions can be of any genre, it's completely up to you (checkout the Facebook page
http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=121957441218810 )

Any submissions that don't make it into the first edition, will be published in subsequent editions. Please include your name exactly as you want it to appear on each submission, even if it's just anonymous.

 

Many thanks in advance :)

I'm currently contstructing a literary zine entitled ''LIFE IS A SHITTY PONYTAIL'' and would love to have your writings/poems/whatever-as-long-as-it's-words. I'm open to any kind of content, just keep it under 1500 words. HAVE AT IT, and send me your words and in return I will send them back to you in zine form. <3
