DJ Frederick is issuing a call for submissions for the 2011 issue of Signals: A Radio Zine. Looking for personal essays that involve radio related topics, interviews, and articles about any and all aspects of shortwave broadcasting, free / pirate radio stations, community radio, low power radio and the “underground” era of FM radio. Artwork, fiction, poetry and any unusual topics are appreciated as well.

Comment by VAMPIRE SUSHI DISTRO on September 3, 2010 at 5:58am
i had an idea at work the other day that me and carl should make a little horror themed art zine for halloween etc & to celebrate vampire sushi's 1ST BIRTHDAY. and then i thought "why keep the fun all to ourselves, WE SHOULD MAKE IT A COMPILATION ZINE!"

so yes, we are looking for submissions! drawings, photographs, collages, embroidery, anything! also considering horror stories and reviews of horror films! the zine will be quarter size / a6 but your piece doesn't have to be that size necessarily, we're perfectly able to resize things on the photocopier..

the main theme is vampires (of course) but other monsters & horror creatures / themes are welcome too. anything related to twilight is not welcome, unless its taking the piss out of sparkly 'vampires'.

we'd especially love zinesters we distro to take part in this compilation.


for more info email us at vampiresushidistro at gmail.com

xx tukru & carl

i just recieved this from a friend in Turkey ---

even my mum can make a book

fanzines, zines, independent publications and artist books are acting as a response to the mainstream media with an activist manner. as they are a way of understanding our relation with society and even with ourselves, maybe slower but more attractive for sure.
however in times of limitless possibility to spread information virtually through the network; communication with printed material is decreasing. the proportion of people who make zines and people who write blogs or collect images of everything is a good example for this. but actually arranging collages, drawings, texts, photos etc. on paper, as a medium itself, has so many possibilities that adds more value to our thoughts.

the aim of the project is to bring together independent publications and to encourage people to distribute their ideas, thoughts via printed or handmade materials. it is about to share obsessions, passions and things in your mind on paper that can be shuffled and touched. it is an open call for everyone to enhance these form of expression!
all these publications are going to be collected in form of an archive that is continuously extended and meant to be traveling through different venues in turkey and abroad.

first exhibition will take place in 15th september 2010 in manzara perspectives in istanbul.

so everybody, we are waiting for you to make your own editions, or send the ones you already did. you are completely free about topics and format, you can even ask to your mother to collaborate with you.

we want people to go home and lie on the floor and make zine!

send your editions until 31 of august to manzara perspectives
tatar beyi sokak 27 kuledibi beyoğlu

please include, a short biography, full contact details, date of birth and nationality.

Call for submissions for EIGHT AND NO HALVES FANZINE (about 8mm movies and filmmaking, especially underground)

It’ll be in a similar vein to Brodsky & Treadway’s Little Film Notebook, but will also cover experimental/underground/avant-garde Super 8 filmmakers, rather than simply resources for small format filmmakers (most of which can easily be found online).

I’m interested in 8mm filmmaking tips and tricks, bizarre mistakes, bizarre malfunctions, accidentally weird results, 8mm movies you like, your thoughts on the future of the format… Anything 8mm film-related, really!

Filmmakers can send in a short (50 words or less) bio, mentioning your favorite film(s) that you’ve made and how to get it/them.

So, if you have anything 8mm film-related that you would like to submit, send it to:
8 and No Halves, Box 322, Olney, MD. 20830
Or shoot off an email to: thedoctor856 (at) gmail (dot) com

The digital formats I accept are Google Docs, PDF, OpenDocument, and HTML. Images can be PNG, TIFF, JPEG, GIF, or EPS, at 300 DPI. All submissions must be optimized for black and white photocopying. Layout for this zine is half-size, cut-and-paste, typewriter/handwriting.

Deadline is August 31, 2010. (likely to be extended)

Call for submissions for ASEXY LIFE (zine on asexuality)

I'm looking for thoughts, stories, and reflections on the topic from someone who identifies as asexual/gray-A/demisexual. Submissions could describe experiences you may have had discovering this identity, experiences with relationships, coming out to family/friends, how asexuality affects your everyday life, etc.

Send in your writings, drawings, photographs, prints, collages, WHATEVER expressions that can be photocopied onto paper on the subject of asexuality and living as an asexual. Make sure to include the name you would like to see your submission printed alongside. If you would prefer to remain anonymous, that’s fine too, although ideally, I would like to include at least your first name and then the city/state you reside in. Contribution length can be anywhere from about one paragraph to two pages.

The deadline for submission is Fri, Aug 6th 2010(i know it's soon but I'm trying to finish this before class starts again). You can send submissions to sidewalkscene@gmail.com.

Thanks everyone!
