Hey friends! I recently posted a blog post about my zine and my connection to the zine community. I also put a bunch of my zines up on my etsy shop. I'd love it if you could check them out! <3
I was thinking that this group might have something interesting to contribute with for "This is the end" Banko paper volume 02
Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for details on how to get involved.
All the best
If you still have not seen what we did with Banko paper volume 01 just follow this link;
We here at MC Sunflower Jones are so excited about this new cover, we're just choking on our own vomit to tell you about it! It's all about rockstars & death. They all die...at age 27. Jimi & Janis to Kurt & Mia - stories & collages all about those doomed enough to die young. The 27 club started with bluesman Robert Johnson, before the term "Rock n' Roll" had been coined, & continues on to this day...& no, we don't bother with Amy Winehouse. We only talk about the greats! Available at our Etsy shoppe - click here! - or by emailing MCSunflowerJones@gmail.com
MC Sunflower Jones tends to right a lot about death...suicide, etc. To peruse the stacks & see all of our titles click on this! Thank you for your time, zine freaks...

We are writing to inform you that Issue #001 is now live on the site. It will remain live until August 5th, 2012. Then, it will remain in our archives, indefinitely. There is a link at the very bottom of this month's issue for you to download the .pdf version of Issue #001.
This also means that the reading period for "the in-between" and Issue #002 is now open. So, send us your work! Issue #002 will not be published until September 5th, but during the month of August we will publish and "feature" one poem every other day. So, by submitting during the reading period, you are consenting to be considered for both "the in-between" and "Issue #002". If you would only like to be considered for one of these things, please specify in your submission.
Aberration Labyrinth is looking for horror submissions as well!
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ASUANG by PAPER MONSTER PRESS Asuang is an umbrella term for creatures that people our imagination. As blood suckers, they engender in us, a fear of the dark, of morbidity, of paleness, of incense. The fear that desires, the fear that suffocates, not just creatures but open spaces and high places. Fear of beings that when looked at mirrors or through other eyes, resemble perhaps, ourselves? Then here maybe, there be monsters? Asuang then calls not just for darkness but for hallucinogen, psychedelia, kaleidoscopic narratives in whatever genre. Specifically, we ask for: 1. 1-3 poems/ essays/ flash fiction (less than 500 words, English or Filipino) 2. 1-3 artworks in black/ white (in JPEG format) 3. 1-3 sound pieces in MP3 or Wav format 4. Critical essays about the small press/ underground publishing/ the culture of fanzines (also under 500 words) 5. Reviews of any issue of Paper Monster Press (and we’ve done 6 so far) a. Pyrotechnic Poetry 1 b. Pyrotechnic Poetry 2 c. S/trip-hop d. Dream(pop) e. Queer Punk f. SANDIGmaan 6. A theme for 1 print year Ex. LOST IN TRANSLATION year a. Issue 1: Atlantis (about forgetting/ resurfacing/ the abyss/ depths/ drowning/ swan diving) b. Issue 2: Free Tibet (about culture clash/ Buddhism/ heights/ climbing/ pure dizziness of clouds) c. Issue 3: Time-space Warp (about timezones/ cultural differences/ time and space/ reincarnation/ and the endless echoes we can never reach) d. Issue 4: Labyrinths (canals/ road bridges/ the strange and devious routes we take to fantasy/ intoxication/ escape) THE FINE PRINT 1. Send all submissions to email@example.com with the heading: ATTN: ASUANG SUBMISSION 2. The deadline for submissions is on May 31, 2012. 3. Payment is one contributor copy and that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from seeing your name in print. ;) VIVA SMALL PRESS!
Dear Shane, I tried to kill myself
This zine chronicles my last severe depressive episode leading up to and including my suicide attempts and subsequent hospitalization. It's honest and raw and most definitely triggering (suicide, depression, self injury, disordered eating, gender dysphoria, criminal activity, anxiety, grief), but I wrote it with the idea in mind, what would have made me feel less alone when I was feeling incredibly depressed and suicidal every single minute of every day? I identify as trans and queer and my zine couldn't escape the smattering of queerness that is injected into every part of my life; the zine was originally a letter penned to a boy I had a huge crush on at the time. I feel really proud of this zine, and I'm hoping you'll like it, too.
There's more info (and the cover, which could be triggering, also) on my blog post.
The zine is 101 pages, half sized, $6 or trade. Message me or shoot me an e-mail to johnnyseesstars at gmail dot com.
