When I was 17, working in a supermarket, I had a large collection of shopping lists. A shame I had to grow up, you could have had them Nick!

hello! me and a friend are working on a zine called Girl Love and we'd love your contributions. it could be anything, like gendered language, girl hate, safety on a night out, how girls are brought up to see each other as competition, how to make your group more inclusive, girls working together now/ in history... or any of your ideas.

if you want to chat about an idea, message one of us or email girllovezine@hotmail.com.

please share this with anyone who might be interested xx

I'm requesting any available zines anyone would like to donate to a forming zine library at the Lawndale branch in Southern California. All subject matter is accepted (pending approval by the Library and City) but please keep in mind the main demographic is teens. Unfortunately I can't reimburse you (even for shipping) as I'm already fronting the cost of this project (materials, PO BOX, etc.) so anything you can send is much appreciated.

Please send zine donations to:
Nina (Lawndale Zine Library)
14752 Crenshaw Blvd. #525
Gardena, CA, 90249

This project could mean big things for the South Bay, which despite having a long history with DIY/punk culture has very few spaces available for the youth. Any direction to people interested in donating or tips for library formation from experienced parties is also appreciated. Both the community and I thank you for your time and consideration in donating!

No Apologies is always taking submissions. Whether it's a comic, a photograph, an album review, a band/cool person interview. I am pretty open minded as far as the content as long as it's good. Drop me a line at tricia.callahan@hotmail.com

Recently was approved to do a zine library @ my local branch! So PLEASE SEND ME YOUR ZINES!

Nina 14752 Crenshaw Blvd. #525
Gardena, CA 90249

Duplicates are appreciated since we may lose some when people borrow. Any/all topics/subjects are welcome but are pending approval depending on how loose the city wants to be with content.

Please share this with anyone you know who may want to donate! I also would appreciate any suggestions (either message me here or e-mail zinesbynina@gmail.com) of where I can request zines from other folx.

Thanks so much!

Ildrenchay Areyay Upidstay

I'm compiling an anthology of funny stories and anecdotes about children doing rather stupid things, I would love some of you to contribute to it and/or share the idea. Here's the blurb:

As I watched a 6 year old try to erase his felt tip drawing on a piece of paper with a whiteboard wiper, I realised something. Kids are stupid. Please don't misunderstand me, I love the little idiots; I find that children can show more empathy, understanding and compassion than the wisest old men. But my God can they be thick? I'm writing this from the privileged and fortunate position of surviving my youth, and that is quite something, considering that my favourite childhood game was hiding in cardboard box in the middle of a busy road.

If you have any good stories that you think would be suitable, please submit them to:

Please include a title under one of the following categories:

-At Home.
-At School.
-Art and Crafts.
-The Great Outdoors.
-Learning a Language.
-Kids are Amazing*.

*The final chapter will be devoted to stories demonstrating the heartwarming, brilliant, touching and intelligent things children do, showing just how much they have to offer the world.

Feel free to include a sentence about yourself e.g. 'Jim Green, an exhausted primary school teacher from Surrey' or 'Betty, mother of 6 dreading the Disney World trip next Summer'.

Guidelines and Conditions:
-The ideal length is a couple of paragraphs, but depending on the nature of the story it could be as short as a sentence or as long as a page. Longer than a page is possible, but the story's content would need to be good enough to justify it. The better written your contribution, the more likely it will be included.

-Please only use the child's first name or write anonymously. Please be tongue in cheek, the book is intended to tread close to the line, but not cross it. Do not send stories that you believe would upset the child or the child's parents/family. Any stories that are deemed insensitive or unkind will be excluded. The purpose of the book is to be playful, not hurtful.

-I will aim to avoid editing but I might have to make stylistic changes, so it matches the tone of the book.

-I'm sorry to say that I don't think I'll be able to pay any contributions (not on a young teacher's wage) other than offering you my sincere thanks, and your name in the book (if you want it there). Also a proportion of any profits made by the book will go towards educational charities (because let's face it, they need it).

-Finally, the deadline for submissions is December 15th (but the sooner the better please).

If you know any good humoured people that might have some stories, please share the idea around please point them in my direction.



A stupid kid, all grown up.

The email again is: sillychildrenstories@gmail.com

Sugared Water is currently seeking submissions for a special themed edition: Myth+Magic (through Aug 25).

Give us evocative, descriptive language. Spin and enchant us.

Poetry • Fiction • Creative Nonfiction • Comics & Sequential Art • Art

Some topics you might consider:
Magic gardens, tricksters, witchcraft & herbalism, magic realism, origin stories, retelling of myths about gods and monsters, divination & fortune telling, gods in the modern world.

We’ll consider creative nonfiction as long as it touches on some relationship with myth or magic, or perhaps an affection for oral narratives within your own family—you could tell us how fantastical figures have influenced your development as a writer. Personal essays welcome.

For full guidelines, please see our submissions page.

  • Fiction & CNF should follow standard manuscript format. We’ll consider micro forms and short forms up to 4,500 words.
  • Art & Comics: No more than 5 .JPGs/pages at a time, please. We already have a cover, so we’re looking for internal art. High contrast black & white pieces work best.
  • Poetry: submit all poems in one .doc, .docx, or .rtf. No more than five poems per submission. Please format your works in 12 point Times New Roman or Garamond font.

We read via Submittable.
