CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Autistic Self Care and Community Support Zine

This zine is a compilation zine by and for autistic people on autistic self care and intra-community support.

As an autistic person who occasionally struggles with executive function and “autistic inertia,” sometimes the typical self care advice just doesn’t work for me. I’ve found that getting other people to guide me or tell me to do something is helpful, and I’d be willing to return the favor, so this is an important subject to me. I’d like to explore the ways that autistic community can make the results of working together greater than the sum of our individual efforts.

Also, I’ve noticed that most self care advice tends to be directed at allistic people, and I can’t find much tailored specifically to autistic people. Sometimes the things I think would be helpful, like requesting support for supposedly “easy” tasks, are seen as awkward, taboo, or immature, often leading to me avoiding asking them of allistic people. I think all of these things deserve more dialogue to bring them into the open and provide useful advice to fellow autistics.

Possible Submission Topics:

  • Building support networks in autistic community
  • Dealing with depression and anxiety as an autistic person
  • Autistic inertia and self care
  • Addressing barriers to self care
  • Making self care manageable
  • Sensory self care
  • How we can help each other care for ourselves
  • And anything else you can think of!

Guidelines:

  • You must be autistic (on the autism spectrum) to submit. Self-diagnosed people are welcome. If I’m low on submissions, I may accept pieces from people with similar issues to those faced by autistics, such as allistic people with ADHD or SPD.
  • You must be over the age of 13 to submit.
  • Keep things SFW (safe for work, no explicit content)
  • Try to keep submissions a reasonable length (probably under 10 pages)
  • This should go without saying, but refrain from including sexist, racist, heterosexist, cissexist, ableist, or otherwise bigoted material in your submissions.
  • Please don’t use functioning labels in your pieces. Also, avoid talking about Autism Speaks.
  • You can include an “about the author” section with links to blogs, etsy shops, etc.
  • You may submit multiple pieces.
  • Submissions will be edited lightly for spelling and grammar. If I think something else should be changed, I’ll contact the author
  • No poetry, please.
  • Art submissions are okay if they include text.

Important Stuff:

By submitting, you are giving me permission to include your work in this zine. The zine will have a free pdf version released online (including a version that will work with screenreaders) and maybe a print version to be sold online. Authors retain copyright to their submissions.

Tentative Submission Deadline: May 31st, 2015

To Submit: Email me your submission at metaparadox11 (at) gmail (dot) com

If you want, you can also submit through Tumblr (I’m at oliviaszines and paradoxnow, my personal blog) or through We Make Zines. Feel free to ask me questions.

In case you’re curious, I’m a 22 year old autistic (diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome) girl who is still fairly new to the autistic community (it took a long time to find someone who would take me seriously enough to diagnose me) and the world of zines (which are now my strongest special interest.) If you have any advice from either side, I’d love to hear it!

- Olivia

This is a call for submissions to a first time zine's first issue. 

InTheFlesh  is a feminist zine hoping to explore both the experiences and constraints of flesh. The first issue will address the concept of flesh by examining ideas, emotions, experiences, of Skin (ex: sexual pleasure, race, consent...).

Submissions may be textual (fiction, essays, poetry, anything!) or a visual art piece (though, please remember it will be reproduced in black and white).

Questions, submissions, or ideas may be submitted to Maizy at:
inthefleshzine@gmail.com

Please include the title of your piece and your preferred name in the subject of your email. (title, name)

Hey dudes!

I'm working on a zine called Clockpuncher, which is all about finding ways to prioritize creative pursuits when you work an imagination-sucking 9-to-5 job. I'm looking for any submissions that fit the general theme.

Examples of content that would be appropriate:

- Practical tips and tricks for squeezing creative endeavours into your day

- Personal stories and narratives (in any format.. essays, comics, poems, etc.)

- ART. Send me your art.

- Honestly, the zine is about creativity, so I'm not going to stifle yours. Send me whatever floats your boat.

I will send a copy to everyone who contributes. Please submit to adrienne.weatherston@gmail.com by March 22!

last day - trying to get more people involved!

Hi - I am working on a taphophile/grave/cemetery/death culture zine. I am looking for contributors to answer this question (30 -100 words please)

What is your grief ritual?

I am looking for day to day stories that have helped us get by, helped us honor our missing loved ones, how we keep memories alive.

Each contributor gets a copy! I need submissions to me no later than Feb. 10 2015. Email me at missmuffcake[a]aol.com

Hi guys. I'm currently in the midst of putting together a zine called 'The Doomsday Book'. It focuses on the cult movie Times Square (1980) and it's main star Robin Johnson. It'll be a one-off effort, A5, and B&W. My main goal is to have this ready to go at least a month before Robin's next birthday (May 30th) as I will be sending a copy to her via a relative of hers.

I'm basically looking to include other people's personal experiences in regards to the movie, the impact it's had on your life etc. Poems and artwork are also welcome. I don't want to push the deadline back any further than the end of April, so please contact me ASAP if you have any interest in this project. Also, feel free to ask me any questions.

I'll include the movie in a youtube link for those of you who have no idea what I'm referring to (and I'm sure there's plenty of you).

Times Square (1980) [full movie]

Many thanks, Sarah. xoxo (timessquarezine@yahoo.co.uk)
